Tree Fern Dicksonia Antarctica 1 Foot Log
Tree ferns have Long fronds that unfurl from the top of the log looking very Jurassic in a shady planting scheme. Our tree ferns are cut from the forests in Tasmania.
Plant them deep enough to keep them from blowing over. They like humus rich acid soil and partial or full shade. In dry weather water the top of the trunk and allow the top to fill with water.
In winter, when the fronds have had a frost, cut them off and protect the top of the trunk with a wad of straw & sacking or some other insulation until the following spring.
