- To plant these ferns, place some shards at the bottom, and fill the pot with soil up to the first hole.
- Remove the plant from its nursery pot, and gently tease the roots with your fingers.
- Place the plant into the pot, and push the foliage through the hole; repeat with remaining holes.
- Once the holes are filled, the mouth of the pot will have room for a few more ferns or another variety of plant.
This summer, Martha fills her strawberry pots with Japanese painted ferns, whose fronds are a striking gray-green with burgundy highlights.
