Opening Times and Visiting
The nursery is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from the start of April to the end of September, 9am to 5pm. 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.

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.
