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.
