Coenosium Gardens is now a one person operation. Dianne passed away June, 2013 and I am continuing the retail mail order sales on a year to year basis. I expect to do mail order through the 2016 shipping season. My wholesale line will continue after the retail mail order is closed. There will always be plants avilable here at the nursery since I will not give up my hobby and will always be grafting some material.

WELCOME TO OUR HI-RES WEB SITE.

 

Our 2014 catalog is now online.

 

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 for $25.00 with any plant order. It will be shipped in the box with the plants. When ordered separately it is priced as listed on the ordering page.

The other book is Dianne and is the story of Bob and Dianne and her battle with cancer. It is available for $15.00 with any plant order and will be shipped in the box with the plants. 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

2014 catalog entry page.

Our 2014 catalog is now online.

We no longer mail a descriptive catalog.  We now rely upon our web catalog to inform our customers as to what plants are available on an almost daily basis as well as providing pictures along with descriptions of our offerings.

 

Coenosium Gardens now has a wholesale liner division. Visit this page and see the Coenosium future by clicking on this hyperlink.

If you have a small retail nursery and want to expand into rare and unusual conifers, then you and I need to talk about your needs. Click on the link above, look things over, download the catalog, then contact me.

 

 

THIRTY-FOUR YEARS AND STILL GROWING!!

Click on the title above and see how many plants we have introduced to the American conifer world in those thirty-three years.

 

I am working on a second conifer book, which I will also self-publish. I have also discussed our Coenosium Gardens plans with Dianne. She is willing to continue working with our customers, most of which have become our friends, and take care of any paperwork related to orders. I will assume the shipping responsibilities in the spring, 2013. My retirement permits me to do that. This change means we can continue our mail order operations for a few more years. However, we will be converting our main sales area into a garden and reducing our available inventory by over 50%. This change will be reflected in our saleable plant inventory.

So many of our customers have lamented that we will not be in business after 2013 that we have decided to continue the mail order at a reduced level for an indefinite number of years. Our health will determine how long we will keep operating. After all, I enjoy working with and propagating conifers and now that I am retired, I still need something to do.

 

 

 

As this site grows, many of the spaces in the tables below will be filled with a nice variety of choices for the amateur and the professional.

Enjoy your visit and feel free to email comments to Bob at:

Also feel free to telephone Bob or Dianne at 360-832-8655.

Dianne is our customer service and ordering department while Bob is the nursery production and management department.
