Opening Times and Visiting

The nursery is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from the start of April to the end of September, 9am to 4pm. At other times, or if coming a long way, it may be best to telephone first, as we sometimes have to close. For visitors a greater range of ferns, plus plants in larger and smaller sizes are often available. We can if you wish recommend many other attractions in the Lincolnshire Wolds area of outstanding natural beauty, to make a good day out, see links below.

See our Events page for details of Bank Holiday, charity and special open days.

How to find us.

Leaving the Market Square in Binbrook village, take the B1203 to Grimsby and after travelling 400metres, we are to be found on the left hand side of the road. Binbrook is a half hour drive from the M180 and the same distance from the Lincoln ring road. For Sat-Nav our post code is LN8 6DH.

If you have a garden fern and do not know its name, here are some pages that give a very rough giude to identify ferns, that you might find in the garden.It is not definitive by any means, but it may get you started on the right track to name a fern, with luck. And also a page just to answer the basic question what is a fern anyway.
