Description

Houseplants, A Practical Guide to their Selection and Care

Laid out in the same easy to use way as ‘Cut Flowers’ & ‘Cut Foliage’, the houseplant book features over 120 of the most popular green and flowering plants, Succulents, Cacti, Orchids and Bromeliads.

Arranged in alphabetical order of botanical names (with an index of common names at the back) each plant is photographed in full colour with comprehensive instructions on watering, light and temperature requirements, feeding, winter care and how to identify and deal with any problems.

To help the houseplant novice there are tips on houseplant care basics, followed by more detailed information on Bromeliads, Cacti, Ferns, Orchids, Palms and Succulents. There is advice on how to care for mixed planted designs, indoor bulbs and terrariums, plus a brief guide to composts and repotting. Two pages are devoted to the most common pests and diseases and there is a full glossary of botanical terms.
