Customers in the UK.
Packages will be sent via our postal agents in Northern Ireland. delivery is free for orders over €90, for orders below this delivery is €6.95. Where possible we absorb the extra cost of shipping to the Scottish Islands, however we may, albeit unlikely, ask for a small contribution if necessary.

Customers in the rest of EU and the Channel Islands.
There is now a fixed charge for each nation, delivery is usually by DPD, Fed Ex or GLS. The amount is constantly updated.

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).

Please note that a telephone number is required for the couriers.
Plant pot sizes are generally 9cm round pots. Depending on availability (much depends on their growth rates which varies from species to species) we may also send out P9's (9cm square pots). Ferns in the collections are also generally in 9cm rounds though I do like to use the P9's if available, except for living wall collections.

Plug plants- small and great value, a good way to build a collection if yu can give them that extra care and attention.These need to be potted up for general garden use. They can be used in living walls but care is needed when watering as due to the smaller root size they are more prone to drying out. You can find out more information here:

Jumbo plugs- as the name suggests these are larger than normal plugs and equivalent to a 4cm pot. Our Hosta plugs tend to be this side and should be potted into a 9cm pot, growth will be good and relatively quick.

9cm pots- Generally starter ferns, easy to plant out and maintain due to smaller pot size and less foliage so transpiration is reduced.

11/12cm- Perfect for an instant effect, more foliage than 9cm plants so will need a little extra watering until established.

13cm- Generally much fuller plants, perfect for containers especially. 1 litre capacity.

2 litre pots- we supply certain plants in this pot size, generally large and great looking!
