Description

I have been growing ferns in my yard since 1980. Despite its small area and the fact that a large house is plopped right in the middle, I have 37 taxa including more than half of the native Massachusetts fern species. I will point out some of the identification characteristics used to distinguish them, and discuss some aspects of lighting, watering, soil chemistry, and transplantation. There may be some spores available for those who want to attempt that rather difficult means of propagation.
