Product Description

Ferns are fascinating and ancient plants, being found in fossils from over 140 million years ago. They don’t produce seeds or flowers, and instead reproduce using spores. The leaves, known as fronds, begin life curled up tightly in the centre of the plant, and gradually unfurl upwards before arching outwards. Quite a sight!

Our collection of evergreen ferns features three of the most familiar varieties, each with a different foliage shape, from the classic woodland Buckler fern to the almost tropical looking Harts Tongue fern and the narrow fronds of the Deer fern. They will compliment each other beautifully when planted together, and they’re also great in pots. They’re easy to grow and almost maintenance free too. What’s more, all three of these spectacular plants hold an RHS Award of Garden Merit, so you know that these are highly regarded garden plants.

Ferns are happiest growing in dappled light in cool, moist and fertile soil, although they will tolerate brighter sunshine. They look spectacular in shaded borders or woodland style gardens with their wonderfully lush, rich green colours.

Supplied as 3 established plants in 9 cm pots, ready to plant, including:

Deer Fern - Blechnum spicant. A beautiful evergreen fern that forms a rosette of ladder-shaped fronds, reaching a height of 45 cm (1½ ft) and spread of 60 cm (2 ft).

Harts Tongue Fern - Asplenium scolopendrium. Long, broad and glossy evergreen, tongue shaped green fronds in neatly arching clumps, reaching a height and spread of 60 cm (2 ft).

Buckler Fern - Dryopteris erythrosora. A large, striking semi-evergreen fern with long triangular fronds that are tinted in coppery pink when young before maturing to lush green, growing to a height and spread of 1 m (3 ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Keeps ferns well watered and don't allow them to dry out, especially if growing in pots.

Care Guide

  • Prepare the soil well and deeply before you plant your fern, removing all weeds and adding plenty of well-rotted organic matter such as leafmould or composted bark.
  • Ferns need both moisture and good drainage, so a good, rich mulch helps considerably.
    Grow in dappled shade in moist, fertile soil.
  • Plant ferns shallowly, with the crown flush with the surrounding soil and keep garden debris away from the base.
  • Maintenance free, just remove dead fronds occasionally to keep the plants tidy, especially in spring when fresh growth begins.
