Dryopteris Affinis

Dryopteris Affinis

Regular price £16.99


There's something so elegant about the feather-like fronds on a Fern and this variety, often referred to as a Wood Fern due to how it naturally grows all year-round in woodlands, is no exception. It's a semi-evergreen Fern, so it will keep its leaves almost for the entire year, meaning you can admire it even in the depths of winter.

Dryopteris is a Fern genus of around 225 species. Its name derives from the Greek words 'drys' (meaning tree) and 'pteris' (meaning fern).

The Wood Fern likes shadier spots. Be careful of positioning it in full sunlight, as this could scorch its leaves. It commonly grows on moist soils in woodlands, so try not to let its soil dry out when grown in your garden.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
