    • Cyathea cooperi, commonly known as the Australian tree fern, is a tropical fern that can be grown outdoors in the UK, although it may require some protection from cold winds and frost during the winter months. Here are some care instructions for Cyathea cooperi:
    • Location: Choose a partially shaded location with protection from strong winds. The fern prefers a moist, humid environment, so placing it near a water source or in a sheltered area can help maintain the necessary humidity levels.

    • Soil: The fern requires well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter. Use a mixture of peat moss, sand, and compost when planting in the ground, or choose a high-quality potting mix if planting in a container.

    • Watering: Water the fern regularly to keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged.

    • Fertilizer: Feed the fern with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer once a month during the growing season to promote healthy growth. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for the correct dosage.

    • Pruning: Remove any dead or damaged fronds as they appear to promote new growth. Cut back any overcrowded or damaged fronds to the base of the plant.

    • Winter care: In colder climates, protect the fern from frost and cold winds during the winter months. Cover the plant with a layer of straw or fleece, or move it to a sheltered location such as a greenhouse or conservatory.
