How to propagate and establish Polypodium Vulgare (Common Polypody)? It is apparently one of our most adaptable and versatile native evergreen ferns, which I am about to order from Crocus.co.uk. They say simply to "Wrap rhizomes in moss and tie to suitable rooting medium and keep moist until establishes". So I assume they will just send me rhizomes. I'm not sure what they mean by a suitable rooting medium (possibly a gritty humus) or 'tying to'. Will I need to order a bag of moss to (expensive), or is there a cheaper material which will substitute. I'm looking forward to the challenge. It apparently grows about a foot tall and spreads easily if happy. Just what I need. Can any clever folk advise? Much appreciated.
