FERNS, A WORLD OF TEXTURE AND SHADES OF GREEN

HUNDREDS OF FERNS IN OUR YARD ARE ALL RESCUES. CURRENTLY THERE ARE NO ADDITIONAL FERNS FOR SALE OUTSIDE OF THE NEW YORK FERNS, BUT WE ARE WORKING ON THAT.

THE ADDITION OF FERNS TO A GARDEN CREATE UNDER PLANTINGS FOR TALL SHRUBS, WAVES OF GREEN IN A WOODLAND GARDEN. THEY CREATE CLUMPS OR LARGE GROUPS OF FINELY CUT LEAVES, CATCH LEAVES IN THE FALL TO DECOMPOSE AROUND THEIR BASE CAPTURING MOISTURE FOR THE WOODLAND FLOOR. THIS INCREASES FOREST FLOOR INSECTS, ALLOWS SEEDS OF OTHER PLANTS TO SPROUT, PROVIDES AN ENVIRONMENT FOR VARIOUS SPECIES OF TOADS, FROGS, SALAMANDERS, NEWTS AND GROUND DWELLING SONGBIRDS.
