Boston Fern

A shady character you'll want to invite into your home, the Boston Fern is ideal for bathrooms and hallways.

This is one of the most popular indoor ferns, and for good reasons. It has lovely, apple-green fronds that arch outwards in a most elegant fashion - over time it can become almost a perfect sphere of intricate greenery. The Boston Fern looks especially good grown in a pot on a pedestal, or in a hanging basket, so the fronds can drape elegantly over the edge. It's easy to grow and loves the indoor life, especially if placed in a humid spot such as a bathroom. Just like outdoor ferns, it appreciates a bit of shade - which is a distinct advantage when it comes to finding a spot in which to put it in most houses, where sunny windowsills are at a premium but there are lots of shady corners.

This delightful indoor fern is a classic houseplant that's well-suited to contemporary living.

Plant Care & Advice

Boston Ferns do best in a partially shaded spot, in bright but indirect light, although they cope well with shade. In practice this means they do best a little bit away from windowsills, especially in south or west-facing rooms. If they're happy they'll put out lots of leafy growth and will need repotting every few years into a slightly larger pot using multipurpose compost.

Water them regularly - poke your finger into the top of the compost and if it feels dry, give them some water. Feed them regularly, using a houseplant fertiliser, between late April and early September: ensuring the compost is already slightly moist before you feed them as otherwise fertiliser could burn the roots.

The only pruning they need is the occasional removal of dead leaves, which should be snipped off at the base with a sharp pair of scissors.
