Planting Perennial Roots:
It is a good idea to soak any bare-root perennials in water for a few hours, but not more than a day, before planting. Add organic matter to the area and provide good drainage unless the plant variety enjoys wet roots. Unless otherwise specified, bare-root perennials are usually planted with the crown (where the shoots meet the roots) an inch below the soil surface. Firm soil gently to eliminate air pockets and water in well. Mark the area clearly since it may be awhile before the plant shows itself.
Ferns add grace to informal plantings and can be used in woodlands, among shrubs, as a shade-loving ground cover, or in the shady border. They must have moist, rich, loamy soil and full or part shade. Prepare the soil before planting by adding peat or compost. Space 12"-24" apart, depending on the mature size of the variety. Cover the roots with at least 2" of soil. Water well during dry spells and mulch lightly over winter.
