I absolutely love Ferns and I think that they deserve more credit than they get, often being overlooked for prettier things in the garden but when you really look at them they are spectacular. They come in many different shapes, colours and forms and are often the perfect choice for a difficult shady patch in the garden or even as a feature inside and outside of the home.
I used to work in a wholesale Fern Nursery and was so lucky to learn about the many different varieties of Ferns, I had no idea that there were so many different types! I also ended up with a huge Fern collection which I adore and have been collecting spores, growing my own and now offering spores for sale so others might get on the Fern bandwagon!
So why grow Ferns?
Make beautiful background plantings
Gives a tropical feel to gardens
Extremely forgiving to many circumstances
