I realy like ferns but have no shady place to grow them, must find some that like the sun, do you know of any,?

Well as it hapens, the shaddlecock fern can tolarate the sun. I had those in pots in the sun and did quite well, but you have to water them everyday though. I know have them in a shady area, as I had an empty area which I wanted to fill.

Well done Karensusan6, you will not regret it, they are such lovely and hard plants. If I may say so, when you plant it, mix some old rotten leaves with the soil. If you already got it planted (which I assume you have) just place the rotten leaves on top of the soil ............ Good luck :-)

I planted it in a pot above some lilies Louis, so I'll put some leaf mould over the top when I get home. I'm in Marrakech right now! :) thanks!
