Compost for ferns in containers

I wish to plant some more ferns , this time in containers …should I use JI 3 mixed in with peat free mp compost?

I just use peat free compost but they would probably benefit from peat less top soil. That’s my only worry with John Innes mixes, they contain peat as standard.

I’m a convert to Dalefoot. It’s lovely stuff. Ferns look marvellous in pots by the way.

Thank you Julie. I have a number of ferns in the ground which are lovely but I’m now running out of space hence the pots. I love the dark brown Vietnamese pots made by Apta and these make any plant look wonderful but I’ve bought some more for these ferns.
