For more than 10 years HSK, the Tree Fern Professionals have been a main supplier to the trade of Tree Ferns. We dispatch orders ranging from full wooden sided pallets to direct deliveries of containers.

Our Tree Fern sales package includes large colour labels, a high quality point of sale banner and “Tree Fern Feed” – a specialist fertilizer which gives a Tree Fern the food it needs to produce vigorous growth. It is also a positive additional sale as it helps to explain the specialist care needed to get the best results from Tree Ferns.

We are also the main trade supplier of Wollemi Pine which was thought to be extinct but was discovered in 1994. The tree pictured was one of the first to be planted after its discovery and is one of the few mature trees to which there is public access.

Both Tree Ferns and Wollemi Pine are architectural plants that work well with our selection of driftwood sculptures from New Zealand. The most recent addition to our specialist range is a “Bamboo Control System” which is being used more and more when planting bamboo, to direct, control and enhance its growth so that beautiful areas of bamboo can be created, adding sound and movement to a garden.

The Bamboo Control System is available in an easy-to-move display unit with clear informative instructions on each roll. Now pre-packed with 4, 7, 10 and 20 metre length rolls to reflect demand and mix of sales during the first year.
