Fern Request for Spring

Brilliance Autumn Fern

Care Information

Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Feed frequently during growing season with a general purpose fertilizer. Cut back old fronds after new growth begins in spring.

The Battery Plant Database says: “Care Instructions:
When we establish ferns in areas where tree roots create dry soil, we add a pinch of Terra–Sorb Hydrogel to help the young plant survive competition with the tree while it establishes.”

Maybe I should get the Southern Wood Fern too. It’s not as spectacular looking, but it appears to survive here and is a shade plant for my yard.
