Indoor gardening, after years of neglect, is now the subject of renewed interest. For the first time White Flower Farm is selling house plants, and Martha Stewart is featuring them on her television show. This book goes far beyond the collection of pots on a windowsill to show the many plants you can choose and the many ways you can use them to create an indoor garden. From basic how-to growing information to theme gardens, from ornamental containers to designs for topiaries, this is the one indoor plant book every reader will want to have.
