The Western Sword fern is well named: sword-shaped, rich green evergreen fronds up to 90cm long are abundantly produced in loose shuttlecocks. Allowed to grow into mature specimens in dappled shade of a tree canopy with rich moist soil at the roots they develop a character and presence that is worthy of any garden. Unaccountably rarely cultivated, Polystichum munitum should be more widely grown.

Easy to order, quick delivery

The ferns are beautiful, healthy and I'm looking forward to planting them this weekend. Western Sword Ferns are one of my favourite plants - I have one already and wanted more as they suit my garden and look great all year round as they are evergreen and swish around in the wind - lovely. The time between ordering was very quick and delivery time request was observed - easy to order. The only concern I had was on the packing - the 3 ferns arrived in a smart but very large box and they had all fallen over inside with water dripping through the box onto my carpet - so I would suggest that if you are putting smaller items in a large box that something is needed to pad out the box and keep plants upright during transit would be a good idea. I will purchase again from The Palm Centre - as the plants are lovely and ordering process is easy.
