Ferns, Palms and Cycads

Plant Type

Ferns, palms and cycads look similar thanks to their elegantly arranged, fan-like leaves. Ferns, palms and cycads can all often be found in tropical garden designs and love warm climates. Palms are evergreen flowering plants usually with feather-shaped leaves. Ferns are non-flowering plants with spores for reproduction. Cycads are also non-flowering plants but have sculptural cone-like structures and often-colourful seeds. We have information on a range of different types of ferns, palms and cycads from the Bird’s Nest Fern to the Coconut Palm and many more ferns, palms and cycads. As well as advice on the soil and sunlight needs of ferns, palms and cycads.
