Osmunda Claytoniana, also known as Interrupted Fern, and holder of the much coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, is a deciduous fern forming an upright mound of arching, lance shaped, pea-green sterile fronds which surround the central and more upright fertile fronds with its spore bearing brown leaflets. A moisture and shade loving fern ideally suited to the pond-side or woodland setting.

Looking After Your Osmunda Claytoniana

Generally pest and disease free this easy to grow, low maintenance fern does require some shade and moisture, planted in a humus rich soil. Late Autumn remove any dead or damaged fronds and mulch well with a well rotted garden compost. Early Spring is an ideal time to propagate by division or re-locate to a new position within the garden, at the same time providing a good sprinkle of bone-meal or a good quality general purpose fertiliser.
