Synopsis

Gardening with Ferns by Martin Rickard

Ferns, an ancient family of plants, offer so much interest and contribute so much to setting the colour and texture of any border or garden. The variety of fern species available today have made them an integral part of garden design. This book inspires amateur gardeners and enthusiasts to undertake more in-depth projects including using ferns in a mixed border, creating a natural dry-stone habitat, and bringing the Antipodean rainforest to the doorstep. Beautiful artistic impressions of the completed projects and a selection of stunning photographs provide a fascinating insight into what can be achieved by correct planting. The comprehensive A - Z of ferns, listed by botanical names, contains further information on selecting the right plant for a garden scheme.

He held the presidency of the British Pteridological Society from 1997 to 2001, and his fern displays have won 10 Gold Medals at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show.
