Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The inspirational DIY guide for painting a stunning portrait in houseplants. Hot Pink Limeade, Café Au Lait, Raspberry Margarita . . . wait, are we talking about plants here? It's not often that we think of decorative houseplants as 'delicious', but in Plant by Numbers, there's no denying that author Steve Asbell makes his debut as a "gourmet chef" of the floral color palette. With his unique and fun recipe-style approach, visually tantalizing full-color photography, and crystal-clear step-by-step instructions, Asbell takes interior gardening to a sophisticated but foolproof new level. Each of the 50 projects within features a comprehensive shopping list and functional plant-a-gram (that's a custom planting diagram), showing you precisely how to plant the container combinations to achieve the most beautiful results in your living space. Even better, interiorscaping has never been more affordable: you'll impress friends, family, and visitors with your luxurious-looking interior plant designs, and you won't break the bank in the process. You'll be entertained while you do it, too: Asbell's signature wit and original planting projects - with titles like 'Flavor Trippin', 'Jurassic Spark', 'Shower Caddy', and 'Femme Fatale' - make the beautiful designs in Plant by Numbers as much fun to read as they are to plant. With this book as a guide, container gardening really is as simple as making art with a paint-by-numbers kit.

Synopsis:

In Plant by Numbers, author Steve Asbell takes interior container gardening to a much prettier level with 50 original planting projects presented through a fun, witty, recipe-style layout with full-color photos and custom planting diagrams.

About the Author

Steve Asbell grew up chasing lizards in the Mojave Desert, later becoming an avid hiker, enthusiastic amateur botanist, and passionate gardener. He started a blog called The Rainforest Garden for his terminally ill mother. Now that she has passed away, he continues to garden for others and tend to the lush gardens that he planted for his neighbors in his apartment community. Asbell currently lives with his wife Jennifer in Jacksonville, Florida, where he makes his living as a freelance writer, blogger, illustrator, and photographer. His writings and illustrations have appeared on Ferry-Morse seed packets and on the websites Gardening Gone Wild, Plants Nouveau, Southern Living online, Apartment Therapy, Mashable, and Mother Earth News. Plant by Numbers is Asbell's first book, but it won't be his last.
