Hard to tell

Once again TN Nursery delivered very promptly. But upon opening my packet of 3 hay sented ferns I was unable to tell if there were three nor was I able to separate the tangle of small roots into three parts. I ended up just pulling them apart making 3 piles. I have them in the ground and marked to see what happens. Fingers crossed!

One of my favorite ferns.

Arrived on time and ready to plant. Bare root, but some are already coming up. I don't expect much out of the until next spring, so I'm looking forward to that.

Hay scented fern

I have had great success with buying bare root native plants from TN Nursery. I look forward to continued success as these germs sprout and eventually spread.
