Tree ferns have been a popular tree for many decades now, and when they have their fronds you can definitely see why!
We have heard many old tales about customers secret tips to keep these guys looking their best- the most popular definitely being putting sugar on the top of the fern and setting it on fire- We are yet to try this one yet ;)
Tree ferns can be easy to look after! There are just a few things to get right at the start.
Position: Tree ferns don't like to be in full sunlight or in a high wind area, therefore if you have a spot with shade or even part shade, these guys will thrive.
Watering: it is important to water tree ferns from the top of the fern, ensuring you water the entire trunk. During the warmer months, ensure the trunk and base is moist at all times
Planting: when planting add in some organic matter- this can be cow manure or we just use organic life pallets.
