Homework helps and three fine books to enlighten gardeners are: ''Ferns to Know and Grow'' by F. Gordon Foster (Timber Press); ''A Field Manual of the Ferns and Fern-Allies of the United States and Canada'' by David B. Lellinger (Smithsonian Institution Press) and ''How to Know the Ferns and Fern.

This book loses a star due to the lack of photos in the identification section. There are black and white photos in the early sections of the book, but the species descriptions have only line drawings. This gives the book the feel of a traditional botanist's identification guide, but photos would increased the utility of the ID section.
