How-to information, such as removing pups and growing from seed, are accompanied by helpful photographs. The landscaping with bromeliads section is full of useful tips and, again, is amply illustrated.
Although this book was published in Australia, its information is basic to all bromeliad growers and is easily applicable to our own varied growing conditions here. In fact, the Council was so taken by this book that it ordered 500 copies which will be distributed to the affiliated member societies.
We haven't seen such a comprehensive publication in years, and this is a must-have book for any bromeliad library. The Bromeliad Society of Queensland is to be commended for providing such an inexpensive and valuable resource for our bromeliad community.
This book is available at this time only through the Council and its Affiliated members
