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 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place in a sheltered spot and water regularly to keep the compost moist.

Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant’s rootball. If your soil is heavy mix in a soil improver before backfilling. Firm the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
