Fern expert John Mickel describes travelling to the habitat of Wallich's Wood Fern thus 'high mountains of southern Mexico to dripping forests of moss-festooned oaks and lichen-laden pines... through the drifting, chilling mists'. All of which gives a clue how to grow this beauty and be rewarded by pale-green ageing to mid-green fronds, contrasting with dark-brown to black scaly caudes and leaf bases, arranged in perfect, drooping-tipped shuttlecocks. Hardiness can vary according to source of material: most plants in the UK are extremely hardy.
