  • Fern

  • Plant for shade

A semi-evergreen fern with beautiful, very finely divided, lacy, rich green fronds.

Prefers a moist soil in full or partial shade. 

Height: 12 - 24 inches / 30 - 60cm

Spread: 18 - 36 inches / 45 - 90cm

Lynne’s notes:

Another favourite fern of mine. The open, lacy texture of the fronds adds real interest and contrast to shade planting combinations. Delightful with broad leaf and grass-like plants. A great addition to the shade plant armory.

Delivery Options

Our web shop is now open for you to browse and make your selection from. Postage and packing charges depend on the total weight of plants you buy. We only send plants out Monday (not Bank Holidays) to Wednesday. This is to avoid packages being left in the postage system over the weekend. Shipping plants and keeping them healthy along the process is an intricate matter. As we care for the plants we sell we deliver them in a way that ensures they have enough to drink and enough protection between our nursery and your home.

  • Courier Service

  • Click And Collect

    Collection is available from the nursery by appointment only or from one of the events we’ll be attending. During May, June and July our show schedule is very busy so appointments are not always possible and also at other times if we are away attending an event.
