Hi Armorama Community,
Have been on a six year hiatus raising two grandchildren. Finally getting back to the bench.
I have a diorama that I started many years ago and there was a business that had ready made scale trees that you could buy. I had bought two and they were awesome. Unfortunately I donít remember the name. For some reason I believe he was in California.
Can anyone help?

Anybody know what kind (name of) fern material is used? I think it is used in florists shops as filler for bouquets, etc.

Hi Biggles, I have bought Asparagus fern from flower shops in the past, and they are a great representation for spruce trees. I use a dowel, drill holes and glue in various sizes of branches to make a tree. The stuff is very cheap to buy and readily available.
