Lincolnshire Today Reprint.

Please note that ferns are difficult to move from September to May and some will be dormant at this time, making it difficult to judge their health. We will therefore usually delay sending orders placed at this time until spring. Please keep this in mind if ordering in winter. Also plants being living things and stock sometimes selling out unexpectedly, the presence of a plant in the catalogue cannot be a complete guarantee of availability or satisfactory crop growth. We reserve the right to substitute what, in our opinion, represents suitable varieties. The placing of an order with The Fern Nursery constitutes acceptance of these conditions.Help and Advice
