Polystichum polyblepharum is an evergreen hardy fern, producing shuttlecock-like, spreading, glossy, dark green fronds (leaves). In spring, they emerge more upright, yellowish-green and covered with golden hair-like scales. The common name of Polystichum polyblepharum is Japanese lace fern.

Position: Thrives in partial or full shade position in moist, humus-rich soil. Good for woodland gardens, naturalised planting schemes and mixed borders.

Planting: Water thoroughly or stand the pot in a bucket of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the pot, mix compost and a granular fertiliser with the soil from the hole, remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the top of the root ball is level with the surrounding soil, back fill with the soil/compost mix and firm down to prevent air pockets. Water well after planting and during dry spells during the first growing season. Also looks lovely when grown in containers of good compost.

Aftercare: Water during prolonged dry periods, whenever the soil dries out and especially in dry shade. Mulch around the base of the plant with a thick layer of organic material annually. This keeps in moisture, to prevent the crown drying out, prevents weeds and adds nutrients to the soil. Protect the crowns from excessive winter wet.

Feeding: Feed in spring with a granular fertiliser.

Pruning: Remove dead or damaged fronds as and when they appear, especially before new ones unfurl in spring.
