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.

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.
