Fern Festival & Sale
Saturday May 30, 2015: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Murray Hall Parking Lot

After 21 years, the Huntsville Fern Society’s annual Fern Sale is leaving the Garden! But, it isn’t going far - just out under the trees in the parking lot in front of Murray Hall. Fern shoppers will not need to pay admission to the Garden to enjoy the display of ferns and purchase their favorites. All the ferns are hardy and well-suited to North Alabama gardens.

Members of the Fern Society will be on hand throughout the sale to offer advice and give tips on growing these ancient and beautiful perennials. In addition, two mini-seminars will be held in the morning: Getting Started with Easy Ferns at 10 am and Five Fabulous Ferns at 11 am.

Most ferns cost $7, with extra-special ones a bit more. Cash or checks only, please. Visit for more information or contact Fern Society president Veali Holtcamp at 256-828-0555 or

Membership/Garden admission required.
