Blechnum brasiliense 'Volcano'

Dwarf Brazilian Tree Fern, Hard Fern

  • New in 2015
Are Dicksonia tree ferns too large or expensive for you? We’ve found the answer - try the dwarf Brazilian tree fern instead! Blechnum brasiliensis ‘Volcano’ is an exciting new find for the home gardener, only recently introduced to the UK, but sure to be the next big thing! Compact plants lend themselves well to growing in patio pots; and throw up huge fronds up to 70cm (28") tall. The young fronds unfurl in a bronze volcanic hue turning a shiny green as they open. A relative of our native Deer Fern, this tender exotic fern thrives in low light, so it’s perfect for giving a tropical touch to your home and garden. With tropical origins, Blechnum brasiliense is frost tender so it is best grown in a container in a heated conservatory and only moved outdoors during the warmest summer months. Height: 90cm (36"). Spread: 70cm (28").

Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed'

Pitcher Plant

Seemingly innocent, the leaves of the pitcher plant have evolved into water-filled funnels that hide a sinister purpose. These intriguing carnivorous plants devour insects to improve their diet and counter poor nitrogen levels in the soils of their natural habitats. Lured by the promise of sweet nectar-like secretions on the lip of each pitcher, their victims are met by a slippery footing and tumble to a watery death deep within each funnel. Endlessly fascinating, Sarracenia species 'New Hybrids Mixed' make a captivating talking point for the greenhouse, conservatory or a windowsill indoors. Plants will be mature enough to catch insects after 2 - 3 years. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 20cm (8"). More info
