The Indoor Plant and Flower Expertby D. G., Dr. Hessayon
Synopses & Reviews
In Britain we spend £2,000,000,000 each year on house plants and cut flowers. Dr Hessayons books on house plant care and flower arranging have sold a world record-breaking 16 million copies. Yet in most homes this plant material ends up as a few isolated pots on the windowsill or sideboard, or as a vase stuffed with a bunch of flowers. Ornaments - not decor features which change the look of the room.
We can do so much more with living plants. Dr Hessayons new book reveals the craft of Roomscaping. This is the way plants and cut flowers can be used to add beauty to a room in the way we use plants when we landscape our gardens.
In its pages the basics of design are clearly explained, and the magical effect of grouping indoor plants together in Pot Groups and Indoor Gardens is described and illustrated. The design secrets of producing professional-looking flower arrangements which turns them into focal points are revealed. Theres more - an A-Z guide to 350 plants and over 400 cut flowers is included.
Roomscaping - the new craft which helps you get so much more from your house plants and cut flowers.
The world's best-selling author on indoor gardening brings together for the first time the craft of growing house plants and the art of flower arranging in a single book - The Indoor Plant and Flower Expert.
