General Plant Care:    Garden debris needs to be cleaned away from the base of ferns periodically. Irrigation should be applied to roots and not fronds if possible.
General Planting Tips:    Ferns need both moisture and drainage. To improve drainage, work the soil well and deep with organic matter - compost, rotted leaves, coarse pine bark - raising the bed at least 3 inches above soil level. Ferns should be planted shallowly, taking care to keep the crown slightly above the surrounding soil. A small amount of time-release fertilizer can be applied when planting in spring, before the Application of a good, rich organic mulch 2inches deep will help keep the soil moist. Take care to keep the mulch away from the crown of the fern.
General Fertilizing Tips:    Ferns planted properly in soil rich with organic matter do not require supplemental fertilizer. Maintain the proper amount of organic matter by adding chopped leaves as a mulch around the plant each year.
General Pruning suggestions:    Not usually needed, best left unpruned
