Foliage Gardens Fern Links

by Sue Olsen



The Hardy Fern Library is an excellent and comprehensive on line reference created by Tom Stuart in 2004.

THE HARDY FERN FOUNDATION was established to introduce and test the world's temperate ferns for hardiness and ornamental value and to build a comprehensive collection for public display, information and education. The primary study garden is at the Rhododendron Species Botanical Garden in Federal Way, WA with satellite plantings at botanical gardens and arboreta throughout the country.....from Florida to Alaska. Members receive a quarterly newsletter, participate in a spore exchange and have first access to ferns as they are introduced. We welcome your participation. For information contact the Hardy Fern Foundation, PO Box 3797, Federal Way, WA 98036-3797

THE AMERICAN FERN SOCIETY is over 100 years old and promotes horticultural and scholarly interest in ferns and fern allies. Their quarterly publication the American Fern Journal is strictly scientific. The bimonthly bulletin the Fiddlehead Forum presents articles of general interest. They too have a spore exchange. For information contact Dr. George Yatskievych, Missouri Botanical Garden, P.O. Box 299, St. Louis, MO 63166-0299.

THE BRITISH PTERIDOLOGICAL SOCIETY offers a refreshing balance between horticultural interests and the purely botanical with three annual publications and a spore exchange. Contact M. S. Porter, 5 West Avenue, Wigton, Cumbria CA7 9LG, England.

In addition there are some active regional societies including San Diego, Los Angeles, New York, Delaware Valley, Dallas, Birmingham, and Louisiana where you would be most welcome.
