This is the first fern I remember growing in my Grandad's garden and for this reason it has a real place in my heart. That said, it is a fabulous fern. It's tough, easy to please and evergreen. Mature specimens look amazing in the shady border or container (my Grandad had a group planted in an old white painted tyre!).
