There are over 60 varieties of ferns growing in the collection at Fernwood Plant Nursery. From ferns native to eastern North America to hardy ferns from around the world, we grow a large selection of unique, garden-worthy plants. All plants are shipped in spring or fall, when well-established in 9 or 10cm pots. Larger size plants are available at regional plant sales, our own open houses, and by appointment.
Due to their sometimes slow and inconsistent production cycles, not all our ferns are always available for sale at all times. Seasonally we strive to offer a mix of ferns able to satisfy a wide variety of design needs. Typically, most availability lists include ferns:
- Native and exotic
- Evergreen and deciduous
- Large and small statured
- Clumping and spreading
- Shade-tolerant to sun-loving
- Moisture-loving to drought-tolerant

Fernwood Plant Nursery is a mail-order nursery dedicated to offering Canadian gardeners the best hardy ferns. We explore and promote the diversity and landscape value of native and hardy exotic ferns.
