How To Enrich Soil Around Established Ferns

Question From: P. Rygh - Beloit, Wisconsin, United States
Q: How do I enrich the soil around already established ferns? it is poor soli and dries out quickly

A: Put down a layer of compost a couple of inches thick but keep it a couple of inches away from the base of the ferns. Cover it with a thin layer of composted bark, such as Fafard soil conditioner. Mother Nature will do the rest. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
