Our ‘starter packs’ have proved to be popular in previous years. We offer four different named ferns, chosen by us, for £22.00 including post and packaging (mainland UK only). All of our ferns are suited to moist conditions in shade or semi-shade. All are hardy in the UK, although some will appreciate a more sheltered position. We will try to provide a good range of ferns. No more than 3 starter collections per order (ie 12 different named ferns), please.
Hardy and reliable herbaceous fern, which makes an ideal specimen plant. Distinctive red stems on delicate looking lime green fronds. A real favourite with us. Easy to grow in good quality, moist well-drained soil. Best colours seen in semi-shaded site. medium to wet, well-drained soil.
Alpine Wood Fern Hardy semi-evergreen fern, with tufts of erect, narrow fronds up to 150cm. Frond ribs covered in yellow hairs when young, which turn black with age, giving this fern its distinctive look. Good quality moist garden soil in shade and away from heat in summer.
Deer Fern (Hard Fern) Native fern, which establishes well in shady areas in damp, neutral to acidic soil. Will grow in moist sunny sites. Evergreen fern forming neat clumps of long arched comb-like fronds. The tough fronds give the name Hard Fern.
