About

Asplenium trichomanes is a small fern with simple pinnate fronds. It is often found growing in walls but is also suited to borders. It reaches a height of 15cm and will grow in dry or damp conditions. Will grow in sun or shade. 

Origin

Worldwide, including the UK

 

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. 

Uses

a great plant for a shady garden border, woodland planting, creating a fernery or in a pot, wall or rockery.
