Once you have them planted and they begin to take root, they will be able to stand up to most everything that occurs in nature. Until their roots have been established, you will want to make sure that you water them regularly.
Ferns mix well with other plants also, so you will not have to worry about making sure that they are planted away from certain types of plants. You can easily plant ferns amongst other flowers, plants, or shrubs in order to achieve the beautiful look you want.
Another great advantage of planting ferns in your garden or yard is that you will not need to worry about bugs or pests attacking it. Once ferns have been planted and taken root, they are a plant you will not have to worry much about.

There are a large variety of ferns to choose from that will give you the color, size, and shape that you are looking for. Certain ferns are smaller and fit nicely within a smaller area. This gives you the chance to fill a bare spot within your yard or garden with a great looking plant. There are also ferns that are larger and will fill any larger areas you have as well. If you have an open area that you would like to fill, but do not want to have too many different plants or flowers, then a fern will do the job.
For most plants it is important that they receive a good amount of sunlight throughout the day. This can be difficult when it comes to certain areas of your yard. You could have a spot or two that doesn't see much sunlight, so it is difficult to plant flowers or most other plants in those locations. Ferns are different though. They actually do better in locations that are mostly shaded and do not receive a lot of direct sunlight throughout the day.
