Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This well-designed introduction to houseplants by garden writer Courtier and horticulturist Clarke begins with a brief section on decorating with plants followed by the book's strengtha plant directory of 170 common houseplants plus a secondary list of 130 more unusual plants. Arranged by scientific name, entries list common name, plant requirements, growing techniques, propagation methods, and recommended related plants. Most entries contain a beautiful color photograph of the plant. The final section offers clear explanations, with illustrations, of light, humidity, temperature, watering, feeding, repotting, training, propagation, and pests and diseases. A few errors such as conflicting information on watering bromeliads and reversed identification of thrip and vine weevil pictures are minor problems. While similar in style and content to other available houseplants books, this is an attractive, informative choice for libraries needing an additional book about houseplants and their care.Sue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., Ill.
