Our Fern Mix is a lucky dip of mainly Pteris ferns but also some other kinds - you might get a maidenhair or a mystery fern in your pot as well! You can create terrariums, bottle gardens, shade beds and hanging baskets indoors or out.
Please note : Plants are living variable things, not factory-made, and the leaf colour may vary from plant to plant, as the plant matures and grows, or in response to light levels and cultivation conditions. Your selection may differ slightly from that shown in the image, because it's a mix.
Fern mixAPPEARANCE : A lucky dip mix of fern varieties including some Adiantum (maidenhair), some Pteris species eg Albolineata: Decorative contrasting foliage featuring rich green edges and white centres; Mayii: Lime-green and white variegated foliage, fronds are long and slender; Rowerii: Compact variety with frilled edges along each frond becoming wider towards the tips.
USE FOR : Tropical garden settings as a border or for creating depth using layers in under planting. Suited to containers and indoor gardens.
PLANTING : Plant carefully ensuring the crown of the fern is above the soil line. Ensure the growing medium is well drained to 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 : Protect from frost and keep moist during dry periods. Ferns thrive in humid conditions. Apply a slow release fertiliser during spring and a liquid based fertiliser every 4 weeks during the warmer months, take care to dilute your solution to half the recommended dose to avoid burn. Re-pot container plants only if they are outgrowing their pots.
