Half hardy plants like Dicksonia antarctica do need good protection against severe frosts in the winter!
Here we have protected our plants against the winter’s cold. We started with the mountain banana collection. After that the tree ferns and last but not least, the palm trees.
During the winter months we’re open by appointment only(+31-6-22370001)!
Be careful when exporting or importing plants – customs sometimes destroy plants and call this “inspection”!
We now have the following beauties in stock:
Woodwardia fimbriata, a large fern for sheltered, damp spots
Polypodium ‘Whitley Giant’, a large, good hardy variety of the oak fern (Polypodium vulgare)
The following plants have long proven their hardiness:
Rhododendron macabeanum , Blechnum nova-zelandiae , Blechnum magellanicum, Blechnum nudum , Astelia nervosa
(Please collect at our botanical garden in Northern Holland as we aren’t able to send plants to you!)
The best palm tree for your garden is Trachycarpus fortunei.We’ve got large ones available in pots of 130L with a trunk of around 2m (6 feet) in length! These plants are delivered at an angle (see photo). The price is € 400 (exclusive of transport) but for that price you’ve got an exceptionally beautiful plant in your garden! Small ones are priced from € 5.
