An early pioneer of natives in terrariums

terrestrial_man(9)May 5, 2008

I have posted up in the Terrariums section a thread on

Arthur Eames Allgrove. His work with native plants as subjects for terrariums was one, if not the earliest, of the early works that I ran across back in the 1960s (into

the early 1970s). I have scanned a 12 page booklet he prepared. Check the link below to the thread and to a link to the booklet.
