How deep do you plant ferns?

Zone 97008 | paulahaynes added on August 19, 2017 | Answered

Our Western sword ferns have been planted so that the crown or center area where new fronds emerge is 1 to 2 inches higher than the soil it is planted in. Is that too high? Thank you, Paula Haynes

The top of crown should be at soil surface.
