Due to the winter weather, orders from these states will ship in the spring, April to May: CA, CO, IA, ID, KS, ME, MI, MN, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, OR, SD, UT, VT, WA, WI, WY. And due to the extreme cold and wind which we experienced through the Christmas holidays of December 2022, many Osmanthus varieties won't be shipped until we are assured there is no cold damage. This may be as late as April or May, 2023. We may choose to delay shipping other plants as well.

Tongue Fern. This genus of ferns is normally epiphytic in the wild, growing on tree trunks or over rocks. When grown in the garden it prefers a uniformly moist, high organic soil. This fern doesn't have the typical fern leaf that all of us are accustomed to. It has a strap-like leaf up to 12" high with no lobes. It runs across the ground with a hairy stolon very shallowly rooted. It likes very good drainage, but consistent moisture. It makes an excellent pot plant, and does superbly in a wire basket with a fiber lining as long as the soil should drain well. Add a little perlite if necessary.. Needs shade.
