**Evergreen Fern (5 Litre Pot)**

**Description:**

An evergreen fern in a 5-litre pot typically refers to a variety of fern that retains its foliage throughout the year, providing year-round greenery and texture in garden beds, borders, or containers. Evergreen ferns are valued for their ability to add structure and color to shaded areas of the garden, even during the winter months.

**Key Features:**

- **Foliage:** Glossy or matte green fronds (leaves) that remain attractive year-round. The fronds can vary in shape and texture depending on the species.

- **Height and Spread:** The size can vary depending on the specific type of fern, but generally, they range from small clumping varieties to larger spreading types that can reach several feet in height and spread.

- **Hardiness:** Evergreen ferns are typically hardy in Uk-9, though this can vary depending on the species. They can tolerate a range of temperatures and conditions, including cold winters.

- **Soil and Moisture:** They prefer well-drained, humus-rich soil that is kept consistently moist. Mulching around the base helps retain moisture and provides nutrients.

- **Light Requirements:** Most evergreen ferns thrive in partial to full shade. Some species can tolerate dappled sunlight, but direct sun exposure should be avoided, especially in warmer climates, to prevent leaf scorching.

**Benefits:**

- **Year-Round Interest:** Provides greenery and texture throughout the year, making them ideal for adding structure to shaded areas.

- **Versatility:** Suitable for woodland gardens, shaded borders, rock gardens, and containers. They can also be used as ground cover or as underplanting for trees and shrubs.

- **Low Maintenance:** Once established, evergreen ferns are generally low maintenance and require minimal care beyond regular watering and occasional fertilization.

**Care Instructions:**

- **Planting:** Choose a location with well-drained soil and partial to full shade. Plant the fern at the same depth it was growing in its nursery pot, ensuring the crown is slightly above soil level.

- **Watering:** Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells and the establishment period. Water deeply to ensure the roots receive sufficient moisture.

- **Fertilization:** Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in early spring to promote healthy growth. Avoid excessive fertilization, as ferns prefer nutrient-rich soil.

- **Pruning and Maintenance:** Remove dead or damaged fronds as needed to maintain the plant's appearance and health. Trim back old fronds in early spring to make way for new growth.

Choosing an evergreen fern in a 5-litre pot allows you to enjoy its greenery and texture immediately while providing the plant with adequate space to establish and grow in your garden or landscape.
