Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here, in words and brilliant color photos, are the basics of indoor plant care, presented especially for those who have little or no experience tending plants. Of primary importance is proper location—the best rooms in the house for specific plants. Readers are instructed about flora, native to different climates, that have varying sunlight requirements. Some hardy specimens are immune to drafts and temperature changes that will wither a more delicate plant. Readers will also find advice on when and how to water plants, as well as information on fertilizing, re-potting, propagating, and protecting against plant pests and diseases. A beautifully illustrated directory of more than 100 plants follows, showing everything from cacti to orchids. Each example is labeled with its common name and botanical name, and includes brief advice on care. Supplementary pictograms indicate each plant's sunlight, watering, and fertilizing requirements. Poisonous plants that may pose a danger to pets and children are also labeled. The book's additional features include ideas for attractive and functional planters, advice on creating colorful plant arrangements, and sidebars presenting added tips in capsule form. Nearly 300 color photos.
