Ferns

With its del­i­cate, feath­ery leaves, a pot­ted fern will bring a soft lush­ness to any room. Clus­ter a few dif­fer­ent va­ri­eties to­gether and the ef­fect is even love­lier, con­jur­ing up the speck­led shadows of the for­est floor. Alice Howard, owner of Botanique Work­shop Ar­ti­san Store & Flower Shop, rec­om­mends keep­ing its wood­land ori­gins in mind when bring­ing a fern home: “Don’t place it in di­rect sun­light,” she says. “And don’t let the soil dry out – mist reg­u­larly, es­pe­cially when the air is dry.” A lit­tle syl­van cor­ner right there.
