Specialist Plant Nursery in the Heart of the Thames Valley
Founded by Paul Barney, Edulis is tucked away in a walled garden in the Thames Valley near Pangbourne. Inspired by Bill Mollison in the 80s, the nursery grows an eclectic mix of rare plants, including a large selection of unusual edible plants as well as many rare shady plants. Most plants in the nursery are hardy and relatively easy to grow. Paul has searched and selected a good range of edible plants not seen in your local garden centre.
Desirable hardy deciduous fern from Japan & Korea. Lime-green fronds in spring. Low spreading habit. Fronds looked reversed, hence the common name. One of my favorites. Excellent for containers. Ht. 60 cm
