Welcome to a whole new world of houseplants -and a whole new generation of plant lovers ready to embrace the joy of indoor gardening! Many warm-weather gardeners welcome the chance to extend their garden hobby indoors over the entire year, where plants decorate homes, purify the air, and generally boost the spirits. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs of each plant, THE COMPLETE HOUSEPLANT SURVIVAL MANUAL Provides practical, hands-on advice for how to care for 160 beautiful house-plants, including many selections that have entered the retail market in the last 10 years. For the less experienced, Pleasant offers basic information on how to identify their plants, as well as where to place them and how to keep them healthy.
