About

Blechnum nudum is a lovely, evergreen fern that grows bright green shuttlecocks of fronds with black stems and ribs. It forms thin black trunks up to 60cm in height making a beautiful dwarf tree fern. Best in shade and moist soil - make sure it is always damp. Not the hardiest, however if you have a mild sheltered spot it may be worth trying outside. Move into a glass house or conservatory for winter, but keep it moist.

Makes a great pot plant, best in acid soil.

Planting and care

Ferns generally prefer shade and a moist position, especially in the hottest parts of the day. Most shady garden borders or woodland areas are perfect. If the area you are planting on is dry, or you are planting in summer make sure they are well watered until they are established. You should not need to feed your ferns in the garden, but a good mulch will help greatly.
