It was at the very end of July, in winter, that I cut the maidenhair fern down to ground level. The poor plant had been in a pot for many years and was pot-bound when I decided to plant it out in the garden. I am trying to get as many plants as possible in the ground to save on watering in summer.
It is now coming away very nicely. It amazes me how well plants can survive a certain amount of neglect.
