A big welcome to the magical world of ferns!

A family run specialist fern nursery, we are situated in the fern rich area of the Blackwater valley in Co. Waterford.
We have a large selection of hardy ferns for sale, probably the widest selection of garden ferns to buy online in Europe. We also have a good range of ferns suitable for the house, conservatory or Terrarium.
We do not use chemical pesticides preferring natural predators such as nematodes. We now use a peat free compost for our plants, with the exception of the ericaceous ferns such as Blechnums, Woodwardias and other acid loving ferns, whose compost has a 50% peat content.

We send our ferns, carefully packed, throughout Ireland, Great Britain and Europe.
