Buy Onoclea sensibilis sensitive fern: Excellent for a damp, shady area

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, fertile, humus-rich, preferably acid soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Arching, finely divided triangular fronds are pinkish-bronze in spring, maturing to pale green. This delicate deciduous fern is perfect for a sheltered, water-side planting or a moist shady border. Best planted in humus-rich acid soil in light dappled shade, it's aptly named since the fronds will scorch if exposed to too much sun.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould or composted pine needles when planting. Ensure that the compost or soil is kept moist - water during dry spells.
