Ferns
Posted by chuck from CA on 2001-03-27 01:36:49



I have a 17' X 2' area that doesn't get a ton of sun. It's against the house so it can't be seen from any window, but I think ferns would be perfect. Don't want anything more than 3'. Any suggestions? Also, can/should anything be interplanted?

If you haven't guessed, I'm new to landscaping, so excuse the imperfect terminology.

      Quoting masterpeace: Planted alone, ferns really aren't the most exciting option. But then again, who cares, since you don't see them from your window anyway, right? Seriously, try something else, perhaps Hydrangeas or the beautiful Brunfelsia plant. Make sure whatever you pick grows well in your climate zone, and if you do plant ferns, look for that high water bill in the mail!------------
