Ferns for a Cool Temperate Climate Summary

Ferns for a Cool Temperate Climate by Martin Rickard

Over the last twenty or so years garden ferns have greatly increased in popularity and a gardener's options have never been more exciting, but making the correct choice has perhaps become more difficult. Written for the gardener, enthusiast and horticulturalist, this book will reveal the fabulous range of form offered by ferns; show ways of displaying ferns in the smallest to the largest gardens; help in the selection process by giving guidance on tolerance of cold, soil acidity, drought, sun, wind etc. There are also suggestions where to acquire ferns, from the commonest to the rarest. An authoritative and highly illustrated A to Z section, listing over 500 different taxa, further helps with identification and selecting the ideal fern for any cool temperate garden.
