About FERNS

An unusual range of plants in variety of height, colours and textures. Once used widely in Victorian gardens, ferns are regaining their popularity. Grown best full or in light shade ferns are not difficult plants to grow and do well in most soils. Many tolerate dry shade and moist planting sites. Most of our ferns are hardy and partially or fully die down in the winter.
