Editorial Reviews

We cultivate gardens and they cultivate us. Indoor gardening enables us to bring that experience and that beauty into the places where we spend most of our time, but many backyard gardeners despair that they don't have the space, the time, or the specialty knowledge to create plant kingdoms inside their home. This Better Homes & Gardens primer teaches the basics of indoor gardening with diagrams, tips, step-by-step instructions, listings of foliage and flowering houseplants, and more than 500 color photographs. The projects covered include basket gardens, living walls, topiaries, water gardens, and bonsai. [NO COVER. XXX.]
