Container Gardens for Spring: Elevate a ruffle fern for height with Carmen Johnston Gardens

I have been in a rule-breaking mood all week, and today’s container garden is no exception.

Ingredients:
1. Ruffle Fern

Container Gardens for Spring: Elevate a ruffle fern for height with Carmen Johnston Gardens

Directions:
1. Remove the original pot and then place it upside down in your container. This is a great way to elevate your plant when it is too short.
2. Next, place the root ball in a large ziploc bag.
3. Nestle the ziploc bag into the container so that no one can see it.

Maintenance:
1. Add 1/2 cup of water to the ziploc bag once a week.
2. Place in indirect sunlight.

(Tip: Do not place your plant next to a vent. Unless, of course, you like crispy plants!)
