How to keep your ferns cool in January

On these hot days it is very cooling to be surrounded by tropical vegetation. What about creating a fernery?

There are lots of options provided on the internet. The Victorians were mad about fernery’s.


  • Keep your ferns in filtered light;
  • Keep your ferns out of draughts’s – whether created by the wind or an air conditioner;
  • Keep your ferns moist…but don’t water outside in the middle of the day… the fronds will scorch.
