About

Blechnum tabulare is from Table Mountain in South Africa. This evergreen fern has dark green, erect and leathery textured fronds. Over time this Blechnum will form a trunk up to 1m in height. 

Origin

South Africa

Planting and care

Best planted in semi shade. Bring inside to protect over winter.

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

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