What you get

You will receive a fully rooted 1ltr pot.


Dryopteris wallichiana is one of the finest garden ferns, forming a magnificent and architectural stand. It produces crowns of mid-green fronds that have mid ribs covered by black hairs. This fern is deciduous and grows up to 1.2m. Best in partial shade and moist 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.


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.


Great plants for the shady garden border, woodland planting, creating a fernery or as pot plants for a shady spot.
