Description

  Bracken fern can tolerate different soil types but grows well in well-drained soil enriched with organic matter

 

 If you love green gardens, you may want to consider planting the bracken fern, scientifically known as Pteridium aquilinum. This is a widely growing plant, especially in Northern America. The fern has stiff triangular-shaped fronds and quickly grows into large colonies. You can grow bracken fern as underground foliage in a wooded area. The plant will also make your rock garden beautiful and works well for a cottage garden. Read on to learn more about this attractive plant. 

 The plant will also require slight acidity and consistent moisture. Provide some shade too. Reduce the watering if the plant grows so aggressively. Look for an isolated space in your garden to plant bracken fern since their rhizomes spread out so quickly. 

  Once you designate a spot, dig a deep, wide hole, then place the rhizomes at the center. Cover the hole with enough soil, then water it. Remember to keep the ferns at least seven feet away from each other. You can also plant bracken fern in a container to limit its spread. Use a large enough ceramic porous pot with good drainage. 

 Plant Care

 

Bracken fern when once established, the plant will require low maintenance

 

 You will need to apply manure or other organic compounds at least once annually. Also, add a layer of mulch on the roots for moisture retention. Bracken fern can grow up to seven feet in height, especially in early spring. Therefore, you will need to prune the plant occasionally and get rid of broken fronds. When grown in the right conditions, bracken fern is highly resistant to pests.

  Propagation

 If you want to propagate bracken fern:

  1. Dig out the plant and ensure that you get the whole rhizome.
  2. Carefully divide the roots.
  3. Transplant the divisions in a different area under the mother plant's same conditions. 

 The Bottom Line

 Bracken ferns are easy to grow, making them a perfect choice for almost all gardens. The plant creates a unique and wild look in your yard. It also pulls out odors and chemicals from the air contributing to a cleaner environment.
