Ferns are loved by some gardeners, loathed by others. And many people just ignore them and think that they are dull plants for damp dark corners. Now gardeners are becoming more interested in ferns again and the wheel has turned full circle. The Victorians loved ferns and set up ferneries both large and small. One of the recent restorations of a Victorian fernery has been at Chelsea Physic Garden.

Crawford Hardy Ferns is a small plant nursery which was established by Jurgen Schedler in 2001 which he runs from his premises, in Spetisbury, Dorset. The nursery specialises in Ferns, Tree Ferns, Palms, Bamboos and Hardy Exotics.

As the nursery is small we are able to provide personal services to all new and old customers. We always try to find the more unusual stock from exotic locations, so it is always worthwhile popping in to see what is new. It would be advisable to call before setting off as I might be out doing a delivery.
