Asplenium scolopendrium, the Hart’s Tongue fern, is a tough, reliable evergreen fern ideal for difficult shady spots in the garden. Its long, wavy-edged green fronds make a beautiful backdrop for flowering woodland plants and spring bulbs like snowdrops and bluebells. Once established, it will even cope with dry shade.

Plant in partial or full shade, in soil that has been enriched with compost or leaf mould. Mulch with compost or well-rotted farmyard manure in spring and remove any dead or damaged leaves.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly.
