Dicksonia Antarctica

Tree ferns naturally grows under trees and thrives in shade. However, provided it has adequate water, it will equally thrive in full sun too.

 The key to growing a tree fern is water!

Water your tree fern from the crown.

Tree fern are unique in there ability to regrow from seemingly lifeless logs. 

You can plant the tree 2inch to half a foot deep. Either way the tree will need steaking with a strong wooden post for a year or two until it's rooted.

 

Water copiously on a daily basis, or as often as possible as the new fronds emerge. It is vital to keep watering the trunk for at least 6 months after planting.

An established tree will thrive with very little care other than watering whenever possible. In spring start feeding every week with of liquid seaweed until October. Place feed in the crown of the tree. 

 

     The substrate can be a mix of mulch, Compost and top soil.

The hardiness of a tree fern increased as the trunk gets taller because the growing point becomes naturally better insulated, as well as higher off the ground.

In winter you need to protect the crown so fill the top of the trunk (crown) with straw. You can leave the fronds on the tree and tie them up over the straw. Some people cut the fronds off. You can fleece the top of the tree if we get a severe winter.

 

Dicksonia Tree ferns will take a temperature of -10C ,

Cooperi Tree Ferns

 

In winter Cooperi tree ferns are hardy to around -7oc. they require cover like a green house for winter or covered in straw with a fleece bag over the top. Mulch around the base will help too.
