Overview

This book boldly goes where no plant book has gone before: to the hard-hitting facts of what works and what doesn't work -- when it comes to growing lush, beautiful plants that bring joy and beauty into our lives. It does this by exploring the most common causes of plant death.

In so doing, this book debunks myths left and right -- like that disastrous water once a week thing. It throws out the silly plant hype -- like that nonsense you find in any other plant book about how fussy African violets are. This down-to-earth guide is chock-full of vivid information, humorous examples and analogies. In short this foolproof guide is guaranteed to turn around the worst plant killer!

Unlike most plant books that simply list plants and pictures and treats each as a separate entity without any logical connection to general plant care, at last comes a 'how to' with a commonsense empahsis. Well written and fascinating book that addresses the basic care of ANY plant. General, logical and easy to remember information is given in entertaining but informative fashion. Learn how NOT to do the most common thing that people do to kill plants--OVERwater them. Filled with pearls about how to tell when plants need watering, potting etc. Dispels myths propagated by the fetilizer industry. A must for anyone who has compassion but ignorance about houseplants!
