Does anyone know what kind of Store I need to go to to find peppergrass by the bundle ?



peppergrass is used by Model railroaders for tree foliage.

There's an article in Trains.com about making trees using peppergrass. The author states that he gets it at florists and arts and crafts stores. I tried Michaels.com but the search came up empty.

Here's a link to the article.

Good luck.

if you have a wholesale florist supply that's open to the public (can't figure how that works? go there and ask to be pointed to the dried flower section. You'll see all sorts of dried foliage that will work for you. You'll probably have to soak what you find in a glycerin wash to "harden" and preserve the foliage because it is dry!
