Tolerant of even quite deep shade, this evergreen fern will provide year-round interest in darker corners or North-facing patios. It comes with our larger-sized oil pot, which has been hand-thrown in Turkey and fired to a really high temperature, so it is as frost-proof as possible. It measures 75cm in height and is 35cm wide, so generously proportioned, without taking up too much space.
- Garden care: Ensure that the plant is kept well watered - particularly in warmer weather and feed with a balanced slow-release fertiliser during the growing season. Cut back tatty foliage in spring.
