Attractive unusual fern


Its a fern I saw when visiting a garden which I admired so wanted one for myself and it came quickly




I would buy this again


Planted in my new Fernery and has performed very well, plenty of growth and full of life. Attractive and great addition to the shady area close to an ancient Apple tree.




Lovely healthy specimen

Perfect for a shady spot


Perfect for a shady spot - adds light green colour, some unique leaves shape and is evergreen so it keeps your border looking pretty in winter too. Growth rate is slow which is perfect as it doesn't seem to become huge.

Hello, I am putting together some window boxes for a shady area in my basement flat - it gets no direct sun at all as it is north facing, but does get natural light. I have already ordered some hellebores to go in but was wondering if some ferns might be a good addition too? I'm struggling to find information as to what to plant in such a limited space in an area with no sun. The boxes measure 50x15x15cm. Thank you!


Hello, I'm afraid it sounds like a tricky spot as most plants require at least a little sun. There are a couple of tough ones though that can usually cope with low light - here are some of the best. Blechnum spicant Polystichum sertiferum Bergenia Bressingham White Pachysandra terminalis I hope this gives you a few ideas,


Non poisonous plants for pots please Hi I wonder if you can help. I have a Nursery school and am looking for some plants I can plant in pots, that are in a partly sunny, partly shady spot. They have to be plants that aren't poisonous and provide interest over as much of the year as possible. I really like the plants in you ready made border section on the website site, particularly shady pink, sunny pink and keep it cool. Could you please tell me if any of these plants are suitable for my needs? Many Thanks Joanne

Hello Joanne, I think your best option would be to opt for mainly evergreen shrubs as these will provide year-round interest. You can then infill with some of the more colourful perennials. As long as the spot does not get too much shade, then here are some of your best options. Hebe Vinca Pachysandra terminalis evergreen ferns Rhododendrons (choose the smaller varieties for pots) I hope this gives you a few ideas. Helen Plant Doctor

Help with ferns to plant in large pots I would like to buy some ferns to go in pots to grow along the side of my house. The site is not too shady. Could you suggest four different types that will not outgrow their pots too quickly? I have looked at the selection of ferns on your website and think they look fabulous. I look forward to hearing from you so that I can put in an order. Many thanks. Beryl

Hello Beryl, Most of the ferns will thrive in pots, provided they are kept well watered. Therefore I would opt for some evergreen ferns such as the following Polypodium vulgare Polystichum munitum Cyrtomium fortunei Asplenium scolopendrium I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Rich green foliage for autumn

Come the autumn when the flowers may be fading away, and the lipstick-red, sombre-burgundy, orange-peel and mustard-seed foliage is at it's best in the autumn sunshine, green foliage begins to glow, lifting the spirits on the first really cold mornings.
