Stumpery Fern Collection. 7 ferns £29.00

After the BBC covered Stumperies as part of their Garden Revival programme I have been asked a number of times which ferns are suited. It seems that a stumpery is now the 'must have' garden feature, and after you see one you'll know why! The answer is almost any of the hardy ferns I sell. The shelter, humidity, drainage and shade mean that most ferns will thoroughly enjoy those conditions. I have put together a selection of the more interesting types, as well as a few natives, to get the best from your stumpery. The Victorians loved the 'Gothic' feel and this selection will help recreate a part of the atmosphere but with a few cheerful additions to brighten the mood! To find out more about the ferns offered just click on the name. The ferns are:

Adiantum aleuticum 'Imbricatum' 9cm- A very hardy fern, and, despite its delicate appearance, very tough.
'Imbricatum' is a dwarf selection with green to blue-green foliage and purple wiry rachis. This variety forms a dense clump and is very easy to establish in good humus-rich, moist soil in shade..

Dryopteris wallichiana 9cm-Evergreen, height to 150cm. A stunning, tall fern. A great specimen for the back of the stumpery.

Dryopteris filix-mas 'Pinderi' 9cm- Deciduous. Structural upright fronds..

Dryopteris dilitata 'Crispa Whiteside' 9cm. Semi-evergreen, height to 60cm
A superb, very easy to grow variety with light green, lightly crisped fronds.

Polystichum tsus-simense 9cm- The Korean Rock Fern. A beautiful small evergreen fern. Loves the shelter and shade of a stumpery.

Athyrium nipponicum 'Pictum' 9cm- Japanese Painted Fern. Deciduous fern so plant some woodland bulbs near this. In spring the famous multicoloured fronds appear and last through to late autumn.

Polystichum setiferum 'Divisilobum Group'. 9cm- This is an lovely version of the native Soft Shield Fern. The fronds are lacy and arching with an elegant appearance. Can grow quite large and usually stays evergreen in a sheltered stumpery.
