I adore ferns at this time of year. They look so fresh and vibrant. Mine also are looking well, although the Ostrich ferns I planted in a boggy area didn't make it! :cry:

I Love ostrich ferns. Lovely shot.

BB_Q I have mine in the moist, peaty area that has a lot of refugee pea gravel from my meighbout (so damp, but great drainage). They love it there and I have many babies I have to move due to a light change.

That soil is really very gravelly, so maybe you need a bit faster drainage? Just guessing here, I am not a fern expert, but I was suprised that I'd have to thin ferns each year.

Lovely Joy!

Brenda, I've had problems with Ostrich Ferns too. It took quite a few tries to get them to "take". Good thing I got them for free from the neighbour!
