Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This small book was bought for my wife and she has found it very useful for caring for her collection and finding new varieties that she would like to add to her already large collection. My wife says this book is not only full of many ferns and how to care for them but is very handy and small enough to carry in a handbag.
