Caring for Sweetfern

Adaptable plant that tolerates wet conditions and wind (including sheltered seashore areas), drought and a wide range of soils (prefers sandy, acidic loams, but tolerates poor soils).

Culinary use: Leaves

Medicinal use: Sweetfern has medicinal properties and has been known to assist every organ in the elimination of toxins
