Our ‘starter packs’ have proved to be popular in previous years. We offer four different named ferns, chosen by us, for £20.00 including post and packaging. 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.
