I have an inherited fatsia that seems to be suffering .. I can plant it out in the shade today, will it fare better?
Does not look too bad to me, plant it out.
I have a couple of Fatsias and have found they really love dappled shade.
If you think its not looking its best you could always move it up a pot size but it looks quite healthy
to me. Generally they do like a feed if moved. At this time of year I usually put mine close to a wall
for protection from icy winds..Good luck.
I've always had them in the ground in shade.
You can keep them potted but they often suffer from not having enough moisture in a pot. The foliage is so dense so rain struggles to get through and people often forget about watering. It's surprising how dry they can get. The right soil and care fro a potted specimen is needed.
Thanks for the replies .. i have a spot next to a euphorbia at the bottom of a trellis fence and under a lilac which it will hopefully do well under !
