Asparagus Fern

£14

The soft feathery foliage on my wiry stems gives me an almost miniature tree-like look. Despite my name I'm not a true fern and I'm actually easier to look after than the real ferns.

How to look after me

Things to look out for

    Older foliage at the bottom will yellow naturally. If the yellowing is widespread, the room temperature may be too high or it could also indicate that I am over or under-watered.
  • Look Out

    Brown leave edges

    Too much sun - move me to somewhere shadier and make sure to keep my soil moist.
