Why We Love It

Dryopteris affinis ‘Cristata’, also known as the golden male fern or scaly male fern, will bring a touch of woodland magic to your garden.

Rosettes of arching, light green fronds retain their fresh appearance all summer and while these handsome plants are happiest in semi-shade they’ll tolerate sun if kept well-watered.

How to Plant

Into the Ground

  1. Water the plant thoroughly around minutes before planting.
  2. Make a hole that's twice the width of the rootball but the same depth.
  3. Add some organic matter to the soil.
  4. Remove the temporary container and plant at the same height as it was growing in the pot.
  5. Water well and don’t allow the soil to dry out.

Into a Pot

  1. Find a pot that’s twice the size of the rootball.
  2. Ensure it has plenty of drainage holes.
  3. Fill with good quality compost.
  4. Make a hole slightly bigger than the rootball.
  5. Place the plant into the hole at soil level.
  6. Firm in and water well.
