Dicksonia antarctica (juvenile)

Soft Tree Fern

Click on on the image to the left of the size you're interested in to see a large version of that image.

 

 

 

Please be advised that this size of tree ferns does not have a clear trunk formed. 

Few plants offer such riches as the Soft Tree Fern - Dicksonia antartica.

It somehow combines the filigree elegance of a fern with the size and presence of a tree and lends an air of the primordial forest wherever it is planted. Seen in silhouette, from above or beneath, it stops you dead in your tracks and takes your breath away.

Dicksonia antarctica has proved to be the easiest of the tree ferns to cultivate - plenty of water to keep the trunk moist being the most important thereafter a position out of the wind and dappled shade will help keep it looking tiptop.

Product warranties

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.

Delivery location

Due to the nature of the consignments, the courier's drivers are not insured to carry goods through your property. The standard delivery location is the border of your property or the entrance of a communal space. If other arrangements need to be made, please get in touch with us as soon as the order is placed.
Vouchers and small boxes can be posted through the letterbox, provided there is unrestricted access to it. 

Pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plant height

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Just outstanding - I wanted to send a Tree Fern to my mother in law who fell in love with the foliage over here in New Zealand, and I found this fabulous website who sent the most wonderful and healthy specimen. I ordered from New Zealand and delivery was very fast and prompt. She absolutely loves it. THANK YOU :)

The plant arrived in beautiful condition and was very well packed. The ferny fronds are still intact and green. It was bought as a birthday present for my son who is fascinated by tree ferns- he'll be getting it tomorrow and I'm sure he'll be delighted! Thankyou!

First class service. Pleasantly surprised with the packaging, more than adequate compared to some plant suppliers. Plants arrived within a couple of days of placing the order. Dicksonia arrived in great condition. Now I know how to look after the plant hopefully it will last a lot longer than the last one. The free plant that came with the order was a surprise and will fill a nice little corner of the garden.

Delighted with my new tree ferm (and accommpanying Lady ferns). The tree ferm fronds - whose orange hairs remind me of Orangutang limbs! - have started to open up after having been planted just a few days. And always impressed with excellent and very helpful service.

I was so pleased with the tree fern I purchased for my husband. In no time at all there were 4 fronds all evenly spaced and now we are just seeing the 12th frond uncurling. I have to say it exceeded our exppectations and we are thrilled to pieces with it.
