Nice to meet you, I'm Christmas Fern! Even though my name makes me sound like I am only around for the holidays, I am actually best known for my compound forest green foliage which keeps its colour all year round! I am also known for being very thirsty - I grow best in moist to wet soil - I will even tolerate some standing water! I am very low maintenance when it comes to upkeep and pruning, but I can be fussy about soil and prefer rich, acidic soils. Since I am common in a forest or woodland setting, I will feel happiest and most at in a shady and moist area of your garden.

Care Guide

  • Watering: Water the plant regularly, especially during the first growing season. Once established, the plant is drought-tolerant and can tolerate short periods of dryness.
  • Maintenance: It prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.
  • Pruning:In late winter or early spring, before new growth appears, prune away any old or damaged fronds. Cut the fronds back to the base of the plant, leaving a few inches of the frond stem.
  • (Optional):Fertilizer is not typically necessary for Christmas fern. If desired, you can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in the spring, before new growth appears.

Planting trees or plants is easy! First, begin by digging a hole that's twice as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place the tree or plant in the hole and add some bonemeal fertilizer. Backfill with fresh soil if needed and water thoroughly. Water regularly until roots are established to keep the plant healthy. Enjoy your new tree or plant!
