Overview

Tired of the same old philodendron on your kitchen counter? Or maybe you want something more dramatic than the ficus tree growing in your living room. Learn about a whole new category of plants that will look great in your house -- outdoor plants. While usually found in the garden or perhaps in a container on the patio, stunning outdoor plants can also decorate the inside of your home, some for a couple of weeks, some indefinitely.

The basics of indoor gardening are quite simple and take little time. Learn how to keep outdoor plants thriving inside by meeting their light, water, soil, food, and humidity needs. Find out about potting, or in many cases, how to get away without potting anything, and then see how to bring plants in from the garden and buy healthy ones. Finally, be sure to check the advice on preventing and remedying pests and diseases.

Focus on decorating your home with ideas and inspiration that will complement all kinds of settings and conditions. Use a plant's color, size, form, and texture to enhance your home, whether you live in a Victorian or a split level. If you think you have to make do with plastic pots, you're in for a happy surprise. You'll be able to acquire a collection of containers that will beautify your rooms quickly without breaking your budget.

Now that you know what's possible, browse through page after page of plants organized by room -- some single specimens, others tabletop gardens -- for what appeals to you most. Need a touch of sophistication in your living room? Who'd have guessed that miniature cattails -- a humble swamp plant -- could look so chic? Got the winter blues? Daffodils, tulips, chrysanthemums, African violets, and ivy arranged in a country basket make for a welcome touch of spring. Longing for old-fashioned charm in the kitchen? There's nothing lovelier than an aromatic rosemary heart topiary.

Break out the potting soil and brighten your decor with the beauty of the garden.
