For the past 3 years I have been trying to transplant bracken ferns from rhizome divisions but each and every time I tried it was unsuccessful and I have no idea why. I have an area by the side of my house I have specially prepared for this running fern but I can't seem to grow them any ideas why?

This is not something you really want in your garden. Believe me.

I do not know much about these ferns but I have a friend that grows them and he gave me some advice which was to sink a large plastic container into the ground and plant some rhizome divisions in that. Is this good or not? Ive just been going by what this friend was telling me so I world love some other opinions on this setup and why I shouldn't get any.

Edit: Never mind the stuff I wrote above I found a website on bracken ferns and I think I'm just going to stick to my cinnamon, Christmas, and painted ferns.

There are so many other beautiful ferns: lady, ostrich, sensitive... and many more that I can't think of right now. :)
