Ferns in the Winter

Ferns are always fine but at this time of the year their lush, enthusiastic greenness is particularly welcome. Hard to believe that someday the whole outdoors will once again look like this!

These are all my own personal babies, divided from plants I was growing. The Boston fern (on the left) actually sprung up in the saucer of the mother fern. It's growing like mad now in its own pot.

I wish I knew your secret Anna, I kill ferns, especially maidenhair. I have followed your watering/fertilising suggestions and had great success with the orchids and peace lilies, my ferns perform well for six months and then turn up their little green toes.

I have two asparagus ferns in my kitchen that were part of the reception decorations at my wedding last August. It's my hope that I can get them through the winter and be able to plant them outside in the spring. Thanks for the encouragement; your plants are beautiful.

I love ferns, and they are so welcome indoors on a cloudy and cold day.

I have a rabbits foot fern that was divided from one my grandmother had, which she acquired before I was born. I love the weird little thing and its odd furry legs, and have been surprised that i am keeping it alive (so far). It is not quite lush yet, but one day...!

ferns are so friendly, they just exude peace and refreshment.
