Additional Information

With their beautiful lacy fronds in many shades of green, ferns add new shape, foliage, contrast and texture to a planting area. We offer a selection of tree ferns for sale, suitable for a range of conditions. Whether grown in pots in a courtyard, used to edge a woodland area or massed beside a water feature, they are among the best foliage plants for softening the lines of hard landscaping, creating a cool atmosphere or enhancing an exotic effect.

Most ferns dislike deep shade and are at best in dappled sun to full sun, but all will appreciate shelter from cold winds.
