A big welcome to the magical world of ferns!

A family run specialist fern nursery, 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 most our plants. For the others a reduced peat compost is used.

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