Please note that ferns are difficult to move from September to April 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

Garden Books

Fern Booklet. A full colour book on growing ferns, published in conjunction with the Hardy Plant Society, ( ISBN 978-0-901687-31-9 ) and in a new enlarged seventy page edition, is now available for purchase. The booklet gives explicit cultural instructions, plus a range of fascinating background information about the history and natural history of these plants, with many coloured photographs throughout. This practical booklet concentrates on medium-sized ferns that are hardy in the British Isles and suited to growing in the garden. There are lots of suggestions for ferns to grow in shade and woodlands, in moist soils, in rock gardens and in containers. Neil Timm explains how and where to plant and establish ferns successfully. Ferns reproduce from spores not seeds and he shows gardeners how they can easily propagate their own ferns from these spores using basic equipment.

"Ferns turned out to be a most surprising read because it was hugely enjoyable and inspirational and not at all the dry academic read I'd half expected." Anna Peacock writing in 'The Hardy Plant'.

7-50p including postage and packing.

We also now sell the much loved 'Footloose Gardener' books on the life, works and wisdom of a rural gardener.


The Footloose Gardener by Neil Timm. ISBN 987-1-5272-1967-0 A book of garden stories, advice and observations published deep in the Lincolnshire wolds. All gardeners tell stories, and here you will find a collection made for enjoyment which will sit well by any gardeners bedside or armchair. Sometimes looking a little over the garden fence into the life of the villages around and at the wildlife which enters the garden, yet we hope the most earnest gardener will still find much to inform and entertain, and While the articles set out mainly to inspire and be a good read, yet you will still find advice on how to sow, make compost, grow wildflowers, the easy way to take cuttings and much more besides.

9-00p including postage and packing.

Beyond a Footloose Garden. by Neil Timm.This is the second book of gardener's essays, stories and observations, this time however it looks more over the garden fence out into the wider world, but still mainly at a countryside here and abroad, especially the wildlife, gardens and village histories; all viewed of course from a gardeners perspective. Visit the Alhambra in Spain, an English village in the fog, walk high mountain trails or meet a hedgehog on the hearth rug, bats in the dales and moths in the daytime.
