I have a small strip of land next to a deck and want to install a vertical garden framework of ferns. It is shady, up against a fence, overlooked by my neighbour. I really fancy a 'blade' water feature in the middle. This would create a pleasant sound and draw the eyes down a bit.
Has anyone had experience of using ferns this way- someone said growing from plugs is quite difficult but they grow better in the long run.
Any advice gratefully received.
