Pot up ferns in and grow them on in a shaded, frost free situation until large enough to plant in their final positions outdoors. When plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise Japanese Painted Ferns to outdoor conditions for 7 to 10 days before planting them out in borders or containers. Plant athyrium in sheltered, dappled shade in fertile, moist, acid or neutral, soil. Athyrium ferns prefer a soil that is rich in organic matter so add some well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil prior to planting.
Feed and water ferns regularly until they are fully established. Apply mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the crown of each plant in spring.
