Book in my library - all about ferns

"Encyclopedia of Garden Ferns"



I love ferns, they are one of my passions!



There is so much to learn about ferns, and the internet, of course, is at everyone's fingertips with all the information anyone could ever need. But, at least for me, there is something about holding a book in my hands, turning pages made of paper, admiring the photographs and letting it sink in how much work went into creating that book.

The encyclopedia of Garden Ferns by Sue Olsen with over four hundred pages is a work of art with its stunning photographs and detailed descriptions of the different ferns. You'll find sections on cultivating and propagating ferns and several pages with information such as growing and hardiness zones, listings of places and botanical gardens with fern collections and where to buy ferns.
