FernTrust ready to host pop-up dinner despite damage from Irma

US (FL): Resilient fern farmer says the show must go on post-hurricane

David Register is a stand-up guy. Despite significant damage to his farm from Hurricane Irma, he’s promising an amazing American Grown Field to Vase Dinner Tour at FernTrust in Seville, Florida, on Nov. 18. In fact, he thinks the hurricane presented the perfect opportunity to really educate guests about how fern and foliage farmers handle whatever Mother Nature deals them – and bounce back in record time.



Register, executive vice president at FernTrust, rebounded in a matter of days post Irma, filling as many orders as possible just two days after the storm. This after clearing roads of trees, getting generators started to keep harvested fern cool and working to repair damaged shade cloth.

“When nature hands you a raw deal, you roll with the punches,” Register says. “We hope customers and those who value the American Grown Flower ideal will support us through this whole thing and we’ll come out stronger.”
