Ferns

   

Ferns

Our ferns are grown from spores that have not been collected from the wild. They are 1-year old dormant plants with heavy crowns that produce a very full container. Some evergreen varieties may be shipped with old foliage, but new fronds will quickly unfurl after transplanting. Ferns are light feeders that grow best in cooler temps with 50% shade if possible.
