Hi everyone, I need a bit of help please, I have been given two dryopteris erythrosora brilliance ferns, they are in small pots , and have a very good root system, should I pot them on ,or would they be ok planted in the ground, thank you very much



Make sure they have been hardened off for a couple of weeks unless they have been outside. then just plant out where you want there.

Or plant them out and if frost forecast give them some protection.

Thats great Seaburngirl, I think they have been in a greenhouse, so to be sure I will take them in at night, thank you so much for your advice.

Afterthought - they like to be in shade.
