Anything else I should do?

srburkMarch 13, 2005

I recently planted several divisions of what I think is Boston fern underneath a tree where grass won't grow at all. I don't rake back there, so the dirt is much better from the leaf mold than what the lawn is growing on. I planted about 30 sections of fern about a foot apart and watered them in a little. Most of the ferns look o.k. and some look a little dried out...is there anything else I should do to encourage them? The friend I got them from has a huge bed too full of them (the reason why she was digging them up), which is what I hope to do under the tree to prevent weeds from sprouting...

if you have to trim them back some it will not hurt, and will give the roots time to get intrenched before leaf growth is attempted.
