Text Box: RETURN TO www.coenosium.com

This site will be undergoing major renovations and all of the articles, etc. will disappear within the next few weeks. Much of that information is imbedded in my book. I am rewriting this site with newer software since the software used has not been supported for too many years. The site will be devoted to catalog sales through next year. My publishing efforts focus will be over at www.coenosium.com, which will also be renovated in the same time span.


Here is a link to download an availability for fall shipment. It is a .pdf file.

Fall, 2014









Our 2014 catalog is now online.


Spring, 2014 shipping is over.

The catalog will be updated by July 15 (extended) and
orders for fall shipment may be placed after that date.

Fall shipping will be done October 6 and October 13.

Fall availability will be listed here by July 25.


Our site at www.coenosium.com was our first web site. Some of the information has been posted for over ten years. I have decided to make some major changes and redirect it toward my writing. Visit from time to time and observe what is going on with my work in the world of conifer publishing. This site will be devoted to our plant sales and conifer information (plants and gardens).

Bob has self published two books. The one listed below, Small Conifers for Small Gardens, is for sale and is available.

The other book is Dianne and is the story of Bob and Dianne and her battle with cancer. It is available for $20.00 and I will pay the shipping. Read more about this book at www.diannefincham.com.

Earlier shipment can be arrnaged via media mail for $3.00 per book as long as the book is ordered with a plant order and the customer indicates that the earlier shipment is preferred.



Read what people are saying about Bob's book, Small Conifers for Small Gardens. Bob wrote the text, took all of the photographs, and self published the book.

  1. Fabulous job on the book.  Ive really enjoyed and learned from- it. 
    It is a real service to the industry and a great credit to you.    D.L., Oregon

  2. I wish to order a second copy of your book.  C.G., Iowa

  3. Thank you for writing this book!  Y.B., Wisconsin

  4. I enjoyed your book so much, I would like to buy two more
    to give as Christmas presents.  J.G., Virginia

  5. It is hard to put down. I read the whole thing in bed last night.  R.L., Missouri

  6. Am enjoying it immensely and want to give it as a gift.   J.B., Oregon

  7. Bob, that is a spectacular book. Not only is the information important but the entire composition of the book is so inviting and easy to read. The glossy paper is a nice touch! It should serve folks who are getting into conifers as a must-have book as well as a "checklist" type, similar to the one the "birders use".  J.T., Pennsylvania

  8. Robert's book is amazing- what a contribution he has made in the conifer world, particularly in terms of historical anecdotes known only to a few.  N.L., Kansas
