Hardy Ferns

FROM TINY SPECIMENS GROWN IN WALLS TO THE ROYAL FERN AT SIX FEET TALL, THERE’S ROOM FOR FERNS IN EVERY SIZED GARDEN.

 

Hardy Ferns in Dorset

Low-maintenance and tolerant of a wide range of soil conditions, ferns complement any shade plant combination. Ferns are beautiful foliage plants and may be evergreen or deciduous, they will add softness and movement to shadier areas of the garden.

Ferns vary in shapes and sizes, and are extremely hardy – some thrive in deep dry shade whilst others relish full sun and moisture. Some ferns will even grow in a limestone wall or attached to the bark of an oak tree.

Testimonials

Crawford Hardy Ferns is one of those small private nurseries that provide so much pleasure to us garden enthusiasts. Not only do they specialise in palms, ferns (including  tree ferns) and bamboos, the owner Jurgen is always unearthing unusual exotic plants that that you can’t find elsewhere.

Mike

If you are looking for mature sub tropical specimen shrubs such as the hardy palm Trachycarpus Fortunei, banana plants, or large speciman bamboos this is the place to go, but they also stock smaller sizes of most varieties at reasonable prices.

Geraldine

The nursery is located in the owners’ private residence and you can see many of the plants and shrubs growing in the owners’ garden, which is a delight.  We have been visiting Crawford Hardy Ferns several times a year for many years now and we alway end up adding to our collection of hardy sub tropical plants.
