Boston Ferns are the easiest of the fern family to care for and look absolutely stunning. They are sure to transform any space. In their pot or hanging in a trendy plant hanger, ferns are all the rage but do need specific care. High humidity is key and make sure you don’t let the soil dry out – he won’t thank you for it!

I’m not just pretty, I am pet friendly too!

The Boston Fern made our Top 5 Plants for Mothers Day list and is also a pet-friendly plant. Even more reasons to love this plant!

This plant is grown in The Little Botanical's peat-free soil, which is specially formulated with environmentally-friendly ingredients to support the plant's growth while reducing our impact on the planet, reflecting our commitment to sustainable practices.

Plant Care

Ferns need humidity as they dry out quickly. Don’t let the soil go dry – water once a week at least. Keep out of draughts and away from radiators. Avoid direct bright sunlight as this will scorch the fronds.

    This fern looks amazing in my bathroom. It arrived exceedingly well packaged. It needs a little more water than I imagined but with little botanical online information I was able to detect underwatering and follow instructions how to spruce it up again. Can’t wait for it to grow and be really bushy. The company’s advice is fantastic for someone who normally can’t sustain plant life

    This looks so lovely in my bathroom. It’s perhaps not as “full” as I was expecting, but hopefully it’ll grow a bit and fill out.

    Agree with the last review. All good, the presentation in the pot is great.
    I love that you send with pots to suit for a modest cost.
