Outdoor Plants for Indoor Rooms
Just because you have a small backyard--or none at all--doesn't mean you can't have beautiful plants blossoming everywhere! Grow them indoors, with these brilliantly imaginative ideas for "interior gardening." All the basics, from basic plant care to potting and disease prevention, are covered--along with tips on testing light conditions, air and humidity, and more. But it's the design possibilities that will most intrigue and delight you; the splendid variety of containers and striking alternatives to the usual cut flowers. Go on a room-by-room flora and fauna tour, where beautiful begonias bloom in shiny copper kettles, clay-potted marigolds brighten the hallway, herbs flourish in a quirky cement trough, and a miniature moss garden soaks up moisture in the bathroom. They'll all continue to stay fresh, change naturally with the seasons, and bring more originality to your environment.
