After many years of the old website that focused only on our Hardy Garden Ferns (that did allow us to ship plants to Fern Lovers from coast to coast, North & South) - we have finally expanding our site to include all of the plants that we grow, love, and want to share, from tropical foliage plants to our natives and groundcovers.  You’ll find our “Pick of the Crop” for great performing sun and shade perennials, as well as select annuals and some favorite shrubs.

We hope you will find this site easier to use and more informative about our plants, the nursery, and events.  Your input to our site is very important – please share your experiences (good & bad) with the site, plants, ordering, shipping, etc.

A huge “Thanks” to Lynda Moore, our website designer & longtime friend.  Also, Patsy Gooch, a driving force through the 30 year struggle of our growing efforts, and the one that pushed me for years to sit at the computer!

Fern Ridge Farms is a small specialty nursery located in northeast Alabama, between Cedar Bluff and Centre, Alabama. We are primarily a retail operation, but do sale wholesale on a limited basis. My 20 years of experience in landscaping, lawn maintenance and the nursery industry has evolved into a greenhouse business specializing in hardy garden ferns. Although we grow other plant materials (select annuals, tropical ferns, perennials, natives, and many fern companion plants) our passion and continuing area of expansion is our perennial fern program. We are presently growing over 75 varieties of hardy garden ferns in quart, gallon, and 3 gallon sizes.

We are located on Hwy. 273 between Yellow Creek Falls and Little River Canyon Mouth State Park minutes from beautiful Weiss Lake and the majestic mountains of northeast Alabama. We are open to the public and welcome individuals and groups to visit. We do ask that you call before coming out as we are small and don't have set hours other than our scheduled openings because of our shows, special sales, and fern presentations. But we do love visitors, so if our gate is open- we are!

Our phone number is 256-779-6351 and my cell number is 770-634-8586.
