How To Grow Autumn Ferns In The Garden
The following are some tips to grow autumn ferns in your garden. These tips will provide you with an easy way to grow these beautiful plants.
You may start growing them right away or you can wait until spring when they’ll bloom better than ever before!
1) Choose A Good Location For Your Fungus Farm
You need to choose a place where you can grow fungus farm. If you don’t have any space, then it’s best if you plant them outside in the garden.
However, if you do have room inside your house, then you should consider planting them there too. They’re very hardy and adaptable so they’ll thrive even in harsh conditions like heat and cold.
2) Choose A Good Shade Tree For Your Fungus Farm
Shade trees are great because they shade your fungus farm from the sun. You can plant them near your fungus farm or even in a corner of the yard.
There are many types of shade tree available but most of them come in different sizes and shapes which makes choosing one difficult. It’s best to ask someone at your local nursery to recommend a suitable type for you.
3) Give Your Fungus Farm “A Hand”
It’s a good idea to put an organic mulch on the ground around your fungus farm. This helps keep weeds down, holds moisture in the soil and it also looks good.
If you’re worried about the cost of mulch, you can go with plain old newspaper instead. Just spread several sheets out around the base of your fungus farm and then replace it every few months.
4) Add Some ‘Fertilizer’ To The Soil
You can add a little fertilizer to the garden soil if you want. You don’t have to but it does help a little bit with growing your fungus farm.
You can either buy a bag of fertilizer at the store or you can make your own. If you make it yourself then all you need are some chicken manure and some old bread. Combine these in a bucket and soak it all up with some water. Wait a week or so and then water your fungus farm with this mixture.
5) Give Your Fungus Farm ‘Some Air’
It’s important that your fungus farm get plenty of air. Lots of plants need air to grow and your fungus farm is no different.
You can leave space between the tree and the fungus farm or you could possibly plant some climbing flowers up the tree itself. This is completely up to you. It just needs to have some sort of air circulation.
6) Water It Every Once In A While
You should only need to water your fungus farm every once in a while. You can tell if the soil is moist by sticking your finger in it up to the first knuckle.
If it’s wet then don’t water, but if it’s dry then give it a little drink. Don’t over water it though. You don’t want soggy soil because that won’t be good for the roots either.
7) Give Your Fungus Farm Some Shade
As your fungus farm grows bigger and bigger, it’s going to need more and more shade. You can achieve this in two ways.
You can either give it a larger tree or you can build a little roof over part of it using some chicken wire. This will give your fungus farm the extra shade it needs without crowding out the tree too much. You can even plant climbing flowers on top of the wire roof for an even better look.
Your fungus farm is going to look amazing and you’ll be able to enjoy it every day. Just make sure you always obey rule number one.
