Asplenium antiquum 'Leslie' - crested bird's nest fern

DESCRIPTION:  Shade loving foliage plant suited to ferneries & rock gardens, or attach to the fork of a tree. Leslie has a slender upright shape and heavily divided leaf ends like curly parsley, on mature leaves
USE IN: Subtropical gardens as a feature. Try planting with our cordylines for contrasting colour. Suited to containers and indoor gardens.
PLANTING: Plant in a shaded position ensuring the crown of the fern is above the soil line. The growing medium needs to be well drained to allow for plenty of air movement around the roots and avoid wet feet. Remove old fronds to keep plants looking fresh and avoid disease. Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks.
CARE: Ferns thrive in humid conditions, provide frequent watering and misting during the warmer months and less during winter. Let the soil dry out a little between watering. Apply a liquid based fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to at least half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots. Tolerates light frost once established.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  0.9m H x 1.5 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm including the pot height of 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
