Description

Part of the Cool Springs Press "mini" series of garden-related books, Ferns mini offers the same inspirational and useful content as The Complete Book of Ferns in a smaller, giftable format. Filled with botanical information, indoor and outdoor growing and care information, details on propagation, display ideas, and even craft projects, this book is a small but complete tribute to the mighty fern.

From the classic Boston Fern to newer varieties like trendy Crispy Wave, ferns are back in fashion and in demand for both indoor and outdoor planting. Among the very oldest plants on the planet, ferns have a long and storied history and there are thousands of known varieties globally. 

Authored by Mobee Weinstein, the Foreman of Gardens at the New York Botanical Garden in Brooklyn and a veteran guest on the Martha Stewart Living TV show and other media outlets, the book covers everything from the powers associated with ferns to their practical and ornamental uses. Every aspect of fern care is covered: potting/planting, watering, fertilizing, pest and disease control, and more.

Also included are fun and creative planting projects, like terrariums, vertical gardens (living walls), mixed tabletop gardens, and moss baskets, as well as pressed fern art, fabric wall hangings with chlorophyll-stained designs, cyanotypes, and hand-made fern-decorated paper.

In this beautiful little book, learn why this great, ancient plant class continues to capture our attention.
