About

Asplenium scolopendrium, (harts tongue fern), is an evergreen native fern with strap- like tough spear shaped fronds. This dependable fern looks bright and green even in the depths of winter. Height can reach 45cm. Grows in sun or shade and will grow in moist to very dry 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.

Soil

Ferns will grow on most soils as long as your soil is not at the extreme ends of the pH scale (on chalk ). Adding organic matter to your soil will help retain moisture in a sandy soil or open up the structure of a clay soil to stop water logging. Adding a good mulch will also help keep down weeds.
