when you say shelter is it ok with shelter from shrubs/trees or does it need it more substantial? OH said bet it needs to be in a cave mouth haha.

I will take some further advice from the lady who grew it. then I will let you know dd.

Please do, as it is a particularly lovely and unusual fern, all the information says tender!

Several nurseries suggest hardy to -5 others say it may survive short periods down to -5.
Shady full or deep reliably moist.

I might find a decorative pot for it so I can shift it into the greenhouse in the winter. However that sort of defeats the object of it being evergreen.
