Product Description

Tree ferns were a firm plant hunter's favourite from Victorian times, a symbol of wealth and travel experiences to Australia. They have maintained this sense of mystique ever since. Now you too can grow these surprisingly easy exotic looking plants too.

Harvested under strict License from woodland clearance in Australia and Tasmania, and in very short supply this season, these astonishing plants really will delight and amaze. They grow under the woodland canopy, in the shade, so grow them here in a sheltered spot too. These '2 foot' (60cm) logs are at least 25 years old, and have been cut back and harvested dormant. When you water them via the top crown, they will burst back into life, like it's the new rainy season!

Because they grow in leaf canopies, most of their food comes from leaves falling into their giant shuttlecock like fronds, funnelling the goodness into the growing crown. Feed and water this crown - rainwater is best if you can collect it.

Even at this size of log, new fronds of 1M in length will unfurl spectacularly within a Month or so of you watering it. The plant is hardy in winter, although the fronds will die back. Cutting these off when they die back is what creates the new trunk, which slowly inches up over many, many years.

Keep the crown protected in winter with a layer of straw to keep cold and wet out. When you get it home, plant it in a big pot, or in the garden soil. It takes almost 2 years to root in, so do not be alarmed by this slow growing beauty.

What Is Supplied

Item 500071 supplied as:
Supplied a a sawn log , harvested under License from Australian authorities, and each log has it's own permit and ID number. Plant in pots or shallow plant on gardens, and keep centre moist, preferably with rainwater. In later Spring season, fronds may well already be emerging form the top!

No specific care instructions given for Hardy tree fern. Presumably lumped under Mediterranean and exotic so not helpful.
Product:
Hardy tree fern. This arrived very well packed. Planting and care instructions not covered by leaflet enclosed. Phoned customer care who said these would be e-mailed. However the email just gave the same leaflet!!! Had to go online to fined care instructions so not impressed.
YouGarden Comments
Sorry to hear that the instructions you received weren't helpful on this occasion. Sending specific instructions for each plant would add significant complication to our packing process and in 99% of cases the basic guide is sufficient.

The instruction we were given from our call centre team was to send our general care guide by email - so apologies again for that. I have emailed you directly with some advice, which I hope is more helpful.

Everyone I've contacted from YouGarden has been very helpful. The plants are lovely, usually very healthy, and there is a problem they sort it out as soon as you let them know.
Product:
I got a log rather than a rooted fern with fronds, so I can't comment on the growth yet. YouGarden told me it would take a couple of years to root in properly, but it's a very sturdy log and a terrific size for the price. I've planted it in line with their instructions in a shady, sheltered place, and I'm confident it will grow into a stunning tree fern.

The price is ok but their plants seem like the end of line or second hand plant and whatever is left in the garden centres or nursery they sell them to you garden. I feel I have waisted my money by buying from you garden. by the way, I check what plants can grow in my garden's soil before I purchase any.
Product:
It doesn't seem growing unfortunately. I wish I waited for my local DIY store as they have it now and looks much healthier with leaves already grown. Even better at a fraction of cost comparing to you garden.

This is the first order I've had a problem with, my order was delivered damaged and missing contents due to being damaged and re-packed by Yodel the courier company. I supplied photo's as suggested by Customer Service and as yet had no response on damage on my order, photo's sent with break down of queries 3 days ago and no response received yet.
Product:
damaged in transit, I don't know what effect the damage will have on the plant growing, as it was an expensive plant to buy and treat for myself I was disappointed although appreciate it looks like it was well wrapped on despatch so not sure what Yodel did with it for the packaging to come off the way it did by the time I received it
