How to grow ferns ?
Scotland, United Kingdom
My mother is growing, or should I say, trying to grow a couple of ferns but not having much luck!
She informs me that she has an Athyrium Niponicum and the other is similar but called Burgundy Lace.
She has been trying to grow them for about two years now but feels they have taken the huff. I have seen these poor souls which are planted in two pots and just managing to exist in her kitchen but not doing much.
She would like to know if they should be planted in ordinary compost or pure peat earth.
If anyone has an answer to this I would be grateful as I am starting to feel sorry for them as well, hehe.
