Hay-Scented Fern

Arrived in perfect condition, even though shipment was delayed by 2 weeks due to covid19-related staff issues I believe. The bareroots look much better than the ones I ordered once through ebay, the company actually provides some superior quality and sizes. Looks like all or most of them will grow. Thank you and greetings,
Thomas

Prompt shipment. Very nice customer service, Give Amanda a raise. I don't have any previous experience with this type of root stock. Hope they all live and grow. Didn't seem like there was quite a hundred there although I didn't count. It's been raining here so that's positive.

Quantity and Quality

I knew the ferns were coming as bare roots. Some of them had little root balls with threads, but most were simply short sticks of a single root. I am worried that they will not germinate. Also, I ordered 200 plants and only received 179. I did just order 400 more. Hopefully these will come with more substantial roots and all of them with have some degree of germination success.

Expectations

I was really surprised at the number of bare roots that fit into such a small bag. I was not expecting that, However the roots were in good condition and I received more roots than ordered.

You had an issue with shipping the second portion of my order so I emailed that you could substitute more of the hay scented ferns if those were more available, and this was done pretty quickly.
Thank you!

Hay-Scented Ferns are Excellent Ground Covers for Areas You Don't Want to Mow.

Hay Scented Ferns will form a colony and spread rapidly to become a dense ground cover. The plant makes an excellent ground cover for areas you do not wish to mow or otherwise care for, but the fern can be invasive and is best planted away from cultivated landscape plants. The plant grows a healthy, fibrous underground root system that helps prevent soil erosion.

This plant is hardy and thrives independently after being stabilized.

These ferns thrive on their own after becoming established. Plant bare-root ferns in the soil to which compost has been added. The ferns are hardy and forgiving, but to establish a colony and grow without issue, work compost into the soil before planting to ensure proper draining. Once the hay-scented fern plants have become established, they will need no further care.

Hay-scented ferns have bright green fonds.

Bright green, large leafy fronds give the impression of textured carpeting after establishing the plant colony. Hay-scent ferns add an interesting architectural element to the landscape view. The fern is deciduous, dropping its many tiny leaves in the fall and returning in all its glory in the early spring.

Hay-Scented Ferns are deer resistant.

Deer dislike the taste of hay-scent ferns, so the plants can be used as a deterrent in areas where deer are unwelcome. Insects, pests, and other small woodland animals also seem to dislike the scent and flavor of hay-scented ferns and are usually not found where these ferns thrive.

The hay-scented fern is a beautiful fern to have around the house. The leaves of this fern turn to a greenish-yellow or green color. This plant spreads very slowly in the shade, but it can spread quite explosively in good, moist soil in full sun. Deer also use the plant as a cover while they lay down, so it may attract deer to your home. This fern looks good planted anywhere, from the garden, natural area, or a hanging basket indoors.
