Looking After Your Dryopteris  Barnesii

Generally pest and disease free, this easy to grow, non-invasive fern although moisture loving will tolerate drier conditions, planting in a humus rich soil. Late Autumn tidy by removing all the dead fronds and apply a generous mulch of well rotted garden compost to help protect the plant during the colder Winter months. Early Spring provide a sprinkle of bone meal or use a good quality general purpose fertiliser. Propagation or re-location should also be done during early Spring.
