Product Description

Hardy Tree Fern ' Dicksonia Antartica'
- 2ft Potter Log Tree ferns were a firm plant hunter's favourite from Victorian times, a symbol of wealth & travel experiences to Australia. They have maintained this sense of mystique ever since & now you too can grow these surprisingly easy exotic looking plants in your own garden. Harvested under strict license from woodland clearance in Australia & Tasmania, these astonishing plants really will delight & amaze. They grow under the woodland canopy, in the shade, so grow them here in a sheltered spot too. These 'potter' logs are at least 10 years old, & have been cut back & harvested dormant. When you water them via the top crown, they will burst back into life, like it's the new rainy season. At this size of log at 2ft tall, new fronds of almost 1m in length will unfurl spectacularly within a month or so of you watering it. It's amazing when they come how quickly they grow. When you get it home, plant it in a big pot, or in the garden soil. It takes almost 2 years to root in, so do not be alarmed by this slow growing beauty. The plant is hardy in winter, although the fronds will die back. Cutting these off when they die back is what creates the new trunk, which slowly inches up over many, many years. Keep the crown protected in winter with a layer of straw to keep cold & wet out. Because they grow in leaf canopies, most of their food comes from leaves falling into their giant shuttlecock like fronds, funnelling the goodness into the growing crown. That's hard to achieve in UK gardens so we recommend feeding with HSK specialist tree fern feed. Specifications Ideal for: Pots, containers, patios Position: Shade Height/ Spread: 120cm/80cm Hardiness: Winter Hardy Supplied as: A 'potter log', approx. 2ft tall, cut back, from which new fronds will quickly emerge. During the season, these may be supplied with fronds already elongated Contents 1 x 2ft Log back to top
