Ferns are an absolute joy in any shady garden. Ferns bring a frothy, soft quality to any garden and mix well with a range of shade tolerate plants. Ferns work well on slopes, in rocky areas and around woodlands. 


Ferns don’t enjoy direct sun and will respond badly to long dry spells. Chop off dishevelled fronds and new ones will come!
