Connie Tedesco at The Fernery

Connie is a biologist who grows native plants at The Fernery, near Hartwick, NY, seen here standing in the doorway of her office that her husband built for her from materials lying around their house. She calls it a small backyard business but her collection of native plants is large. Her fern collection is the best around. Her website tells you all you want to know before you make a visit.
