Planting Bird's Nest Ferns in Outdoor Containers

Planting continues in front of my Winter House carport - this time, with four bird's nest ferns.

A couple of years ago, my friend and owner of Luppino Landscaping and Masonry LLC, Carmine Luppino, gifted me with four beautiful antique ornamental urns. They look so beautiful on the stone wall outside my carport. This week my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, potted them up with bird's nest ferns, Asplenium nidus - those interesting plants with long, erect, spoon-shaped, bright green fronds that rise from a central rosette. I try to vary the plantings in my outdoor containers every year - these ferns were just perfect for the vessels.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
