Our ‘starter packs’ have proved to be popular in previous years. We offer four different named ferns, chosen by us. 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 2 starter collections per order (ie 8 different named ferns), please. Includes post and packaging (mainland UK only).
Interrupted Fern So named because the fertile segments of the fruiting fronds are carried in between lengths of barren frond rib. Deciduous fern with fronds growing to 150cm in mature plants. Neutral to acid rich soil in sheltered shade or semi-shade.
Victoria Lady Fern – Originates from Scotland in 1861. Very narrow pinnae on long fronds with drooping tassels of split tips. The deciduous fronds reach 30-60cm and will tolerate conditions from full light to deep shade.
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.
