Presentation Title
: A World of Ferns for Canadian Gardens

: This slide show presentation explores the unique and ancient history of ferns, the many ways of using ferns in the landscape, and the large variety of ferns suitable for Canadian gardens.

: Iain Jack is owner and operator of Fernwood Plant Nursery in Hubbards, NS. He is a graduate with honours of NSCC’s Commercial Greenhouse Production program. Also a social worker, plants have been part of his life and work for many years, from community organizing with community garden groups to recreational horticulture with persons with disabilities. In 2009 Iain decided to return to his horticultural roots and passion for propagation by starting a nursery. Inspired by a love of woodlands, wild and cultivated, Fernwood is a mail-order nursery dedicated to offering Canadian gardeners the best hardy ferns. Its goal is to explore and promote the diversity and landscape value of native and hardy exotic ferns. At last count there were over 50 varieties of ferns in the Fernwood collection.
