About this book

The Beauty of Houseplants is set apart from the normal houseplant care book by being a total delight to look at. The illustrations of over 70 houseplants are in themselves artistic and stunning, capturing the extraordinary variety and beauty of temperate plants with a detailed guide to their individual care and how to put right what goes wrong.

The susceptibility of each plant to pests and diseases is dealt with separately and in detail with a chapter on their identification and how to deal with them.

There is a section showing how to choose plants for each room of the house, depending on the amounts of heat, light and humidity. This is really helpful if you have often managed to kill houseplants despite your best efforts and there is a thorough description for the rescuing of each plant!

A potted history of how houseplants were discovered from all over the world and a chapter on propagation make this one of the most delightful reference books on the subject ever created.
