Offer: ferns (Woodridge) 3d - I am in Woodridge near Hobson and Woodridge Drive. I posted these to a couple of groups yesterday, but didn't include photos, so I'm reposting it and including a couple more groups. Let me know when you can come by and how many you might be interested in. If you don't hear from me right away, please be patient. I will be contacting those interested one at a time and digging up the plants when you come to pick them up, so they have a better chance of being transplanted successfully. So it may take awhile to get through all the responses. These ferns are about 3 feet tall, though the younger ones are smaller (they will catch up to the taller ones). For reference, the fern bed in the photos is actually 18 feet wide and 10 feet deep. They do spread over time, and are starting to encroach in my neighbor's yard. I would like to remove at least 2 feet of plants in the back, and shrink the bed by at least 6 feet on the right side, so I do have quite a few available. Ferns prefer shade to part sun, and moist soil. The area they are in tends to get dry. If you put them in a dry area and it stays dry for too long without watering it, they can start turning brown and go dormant for the rest of the season (which has happened with these several times. Bleeding heart plants will do the same). But they will come back again just fine the following Spring. The area they are in currently also probably gets more sun than they prefer, but they don't seem to mind as long as I keep them watered.

Offer: tall ferns (Woodridge) 4d - I am in Woodridge near Hobson and Woodridge Drive. I have a large bed of 3 foot tall ferns that has spread so much it is now starting to go into the neighbor's yard as well as taking over the area where they are planted. So I have to dig out lots of them, and wondered if anyone was interested. I have quite a few that will be available. I won't dig them up until I have someone who wants them. These do like shade, and prefer to be kept moist. If they dry out, the fronds start dying back and eventually the plant goes dormant for the rest of the year. It will come back just fine the next year, but it's better if you can keep it watered in dry weather. They also spread by runners, so they will fill out an area instead of staying contained. The area I have them in isn't ideal, as it is drier than they like, and gets more sun than they prefer, but they have still managed to thrive. Let me know how many you might be interested in and when you would be available to come by and get them. Please be patient if I don't contact you right away, as I will be contacting people one at a time. I don't know exactly how many I have to thin out, so I will just keep going as long as I still have some to give away. After these are all gone, I will contact anyone left to let them know. Thanks.
