Tree Fern's

Tree Fern's (Dicksonia antarctica (Soft tree fern))

These are my Tree Ferns. The tallest is 6 ft the other two are about 3ft/4ft. They are planted in an area that is damp and shelted from winds etc

Do you give your tree ferns any feed during the summer?
There seems to be mixed views about this.
We mist and water them every day during hot summer days to stop them drying out.
It would be nice to hear from any other G.O.Y members who have tree ferns about this.

During the warm spring and summer nights I hose the fiberous trunk's and let the water rain down on the crowns.
I had them in pots before moving to this house in May 06, since we have been here they absoloutley thrive in this part of the garden. It's moist, shadded and what you cant see is the arch way through the conifer hedge that keeps them cool.
