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 treeferns 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.

Outdoor plants pot sizes
Outdoor plants 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.

Plants measurements
Plant measurements

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.

Plant warranties
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.

Tree Fern
starstarstarstarstar
I received my 3’ Tree fern two weeks ago and I am thrilled with it. It arrived on time and extremely well packaged. I was very impressed with the standard of the tree ( I have seen smaller ones in local garden centres for more money). It had the beginnings of several fronds when delivered and they are now over 3 feet long and still growing (see pics). My garden is under construction at the moment and I can’t wait to put it in its permanent place. It makes me smile every time I look at it and god knows we need something to smile about at the moment. Thank you Palm Centre.
