Sue Olsen

Sue Olsen developed a love of ferns in the late 1960s and has been studying, propagating, and writing about them ever since. Her fern nursery, Foliage Gardens, has introduced numerous ferns to North American horticulture and is the oldest mail-order nursery in the United States for spore-grown temperate ferns. Sue was a founding member and first president of the Hardy Fern Foundation, and has served since then as editor of Hardy Fern? Quarterly. Her interest and joy in photography date back to childhood and the gift of a simple box camera. She has shared her photos and plant knowledge in lectures in England and throughout North America. Sue is a graduate of Cornell University.
