Home :: Hardy Ferns

Sorry, we are only shipping hostas and daylilies at the moment. The website will be updated for a select number of perennials in mid to late September for shipping the week of 9/23 and we will post a message when the inventory is updated. We can ship hostas and daylilies now, and orders for those are being processed within 7 days.

The nursery will be closing for good on October 12th and this will be our last year in operation.  We have not put anything into production so our fall inventory will be very limited. We are sorry for the disappointment however we thank you for your years of support.

Hardy Ferns

Hardy ferns from Hallson Gardens: We currently grow over two dozen different hardy ferns and we are continuously testing new plants in our zone 5 growing areas and gardens. Below you can shop from our available plants and we ship ferns bare root while they are dormant in April and May plus they are available at the nursery in the summer. Out of Stock indicates the mail order status, but many ferns are available all summer at the nursery.

If you have any questions feel free to contact us and we will be happy to help you. Thank you for your interest in our nursery and our plants!
