The fern is particularly well suited for shady areas in the garden. He is the star there because he likes it here. It grows and thrives and gets bigger and bigger. Now comes the time when you can fern multiply should.
Of course you can buy new plants, but even grown ones are something completely different. They belong to the family somehow. So, we intend to propagate a fern.
That's how it works:
- Ferns consist of fronds. We need a frond of it, which is not separated from the mother plant, but only bent to the side and placed on the ground with the underside.
- Now we have to fix the frond to the floor with wire clips. In the course of the next few weeks, roots will form and the first new leaves on the top.
- As soon as the young plants are a little larger, they are separated from the mother plant and planted in separate pots.
Since some ferns only really get big in late summer, it can be almost too late for young plants outdoors. Simply cut off the frond here and bring it inside in a sowing bowl.
