Osmunda are best planted in a poorly drained soil of clay, loam or chalk within an acidic, neutral or alkaline PH balance. They can be positioned in an area of full sun, part shade or full shade. Osmunda are well suited to beds and borders within an informal or wildflower meadow. They are also a perfect marginal plant for growing around a pond or stream.

To prepare the soil for planting, provide a generous amount of compost such as leaf mould, shredded bark or grit and gravel for heavier soil types and mix in well to the native soil.
Water regularly during dry spells as the crown and trunk will not tolerate drying out at all. Ensure the trunk remains damp during all conditions.
It is possible to propagate Osmunda by division in early spring or autumn.
