About this book

After a brief introduction to fern anatomy and life history, the main part of The Cultivation and Propagation of British Ferns deals with fern habitats in the wild and the cultural requirements needed in a garden. It describes how to grow ferns from spores, vegetative propagation, and the few diseases to which ferns are liable. It goes on to recommend the species and cultivars suitable for different habitats within a British garden, and the best of the foreign hardy ferns.
