Fern Festival & Sale
Saturday June 4, 2016: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
Grisham Pavilion

For twenty-three years now the Huntsville Fern Society has held an annual Fern Sale to offer North Alabama gardeners a unique opportunity to expand their gardens. Due to construction, this year’s sale will be held in the Grisham Pavilion adjacent to the Linda J. Smith Visitor Center parking lot. Over forty different types of hardy outdoor ferns and Selaginellas will be for sale.  Members of the Huntsville Fern Society will be on hand to answer questions. In addition, we offer two seminars on growing and enjoying ferns at 10 am and 12 pm.

Popular and much-loved ferns, such as Maidenhairs and Autumn ferns will be available. New ferns offered for the first time this year include the Soft Shield Bevis, Crested Martindale and Hairy Lip ferns. In addition, a variety of ornamental mosses and other fern-allies will be for sale, including Peacock & Krauss’ Goldtips spikemosses that work great in pot arrangements or hanging baskets.

Most ferns sell for just $7, with gallon-sized and a few special ones priced a bit higher. Cash or check only, please. All proceeds from the sale go to enhance and maintain the Garden’s Fern Glade - the coolest, shadiest green space in all of Huntsville!
