It’s a “thorny” job but somebody’s gotta do it!! As I write this message, I have bleeding cuts on my right hand and arm. All this (mixing planter soil with coconut fiber, cutting the plastic planter, transplanting, etc.) and I’m just the “foster parent.” I have no desire to keep this plant in my yard; it’s ready for adoption!! ~~ I’d appreciate “feed back”: Why would someone want an Asparagus Fern in their yard??

Believe it or not, that large, very heavy clay planter had a faded retail store price tag saying $7.99. I’m speculating the planter is an “antique” 😉 because I can’t buy plastic pots that size for $7.99.
