This website has been designed to make on-line and off-line ordering of your ferns as easy and secure as possible.
Unlike many other mail order nurseries, all of our ferns are posted in their containers. This ensures the ferns reach you in great condition as the root systems are well protected (many ferns dislike root disturbance). It also means they can be purchased and planted at anytime of the year when the ground conditions are suitable (not waterlogged or frozen).
Plants are usually sent out each Tuesday and Thursday. During autumn and winter deliveries are usually sent out once a week and may be delayed by cold weather. Please bear with us during the busy period of June and July, especially around the large flower shows of Bloom, Tatton, and Hyde Hall.
Postage is automatically calculated in the basket as you shop and is based on the weight of the plants.
Customers in the UK-Postage starts from £4.95 and is calculated by weight. There is a maximum charge of £6.95 delivery and postage is free on orders over £75.
Delivery is usually three to five working days.As all plants are individually and carefully wrapped this may take longer in busier times as a better wrapped package takes longer to do than a rushed one so do allow 14 days for delivery! You will be notified when the plants have dispatched. If you would like the tracking number please let me know.

Postage is automatically calculated by weight.
Plant pot sizes are generally 9cm round pots. Depending on availability (much depends on their growth rates which varies from species to species) we also send out P9's (9cm square pots). The more unusual ferns are usually in 9cm rounds. Ferns in the collections are also generally in 9cm rounds though I do like to use the P9's if available. Due to the extra weight of P9's orders to Europe will almost always be in 9cm rounds. if these are not available then we may remove some soil if safe to do so.
Plugs are occasionally offered and must be potted on and not planted straight into the garden. The exception would be for stone, or living, walls. Great care would be needed to keep them irrigated.
7cm plants are occasionally offered, usually for the indoor plants as these are great for planting into terrariums etc.
