Do any of you recall, back in the 1990's, a 10 volume series of paperback books titled "Taylor's Guide to..........."? One of the volumes was "Taylor's Guide to Specialty Nurseries" and I was lucky enough to take it with me when I visited Seattle and Vancouver.
It is, pretty obviously, 2021 and 28 years have passed since I used that book to find outstanding Pacific Northwest nurseries... and some of those nurseries no longer exist.
One that was listed and is still in business is Fancy Fronds Nursery, owned and managed by Judith Jones.
Her website is well worth exploring... her inventory of ferns is very diversified and fascinating... and they are well worth growing in your garden.
If you've never grown ferns before I will strongly recommend:
Autumn Fern [Dryopteris erythrosora]
Ghost Fern [Athyrium 'Ghost']
Japanese Painted Fern [Anisocampium niponicum]
Sensitive Fern [Onoclea sensibilis]
Tokyo Wood Fern [Dryopteris tokyoensis]
Parsley Fern [Dryopteris filix-mas 'Parsley']
