How to Grow Maidenhair fern plants
The plants remain attractive from spring to fall when planted in humus-rich, loose, well-drained soil that is kept moist at all times. Give your Maidenhair ferns a cool site in part to full shade. Plants can be propagated by dividing the creeping rhizomes or tubers in early spring, just as they emerge. Tubers should be planted just below the surface.
This lacy fern adds a delicate touch to the shade garden. Plant Adiantum pedatum with hostas, astilbes, fringed bleeding hearts, lungworts (Pulmonaria), toad lilies (Tricyrtis), and woodland wildflowers.

Please Note: Beginning in September, many plants begin to go dormant.
Some plants may have already dropped their leaves, died back to the ground or are beginning to turn yellow when they arrive to you. Deciduous trees, shrubs, perennials and groundcovers do go dormant.
This is a normal stage for plants at this time of the year. Plant upon arrival as roots continue to grow while the ground is warm. Some plants require seasonal maintenance and may have been pruned.
