Synopsis

Houseplant Success an Essential Guide to Growing Beautiful Plants in Your Home Throughout the Year by Jackie Matthews

This is an essential guide to growing beautiful plants in your home throughout the year. It includes advice on houseplant care, as well as step-by-step techniques for planting, repotting and propagation. It is an beautifully illustrated A - Z guide to houseplants - from Acalyphas to Yuccas - provides quick and easy identification, information and care advice for each type. It includes suggestions for the best settings, interesting groupings and stunning displays, to make the most of your houseplants and enhance the style and mood of a room. It also includes a useful chart indicating foliage or flower interest, and when blooms should be at their best. Houseplants can transform any living space with their interesting foliage and pretty flowers. Choosing the right plants for your home and how to care for them is clearly explained in this practical, simple-to-follow book. Advice is given on how to achieve different effects, attractive displays and groupings, the right setting for your plants and how to deal with any problems that may occur. An A - Z guide describes the most popular and some less familiar houseplants, and a useful quick-reference chart tells you what plants are at their best throughout the year. Packed with helpful information, the book will ensure your houseplants give pleasure for many years.
