A happy plant makes for a happy home and a happy life; find the right plant for each room.

Indoor plants have never been so important as we realise the power of their presence in making us feel calmer and more connected to nature. But dying plants around the house are negatives you could do without!

This unique guide from an indoor plant expert explains what plants you should keep in each room, and whereabouts. It contains:

• Easy-to-understand but horticulturally accurate information on what affects plants in each room – light, humidity and temperature.

• What typically makes each room different, which plants best suit which room, and how to care for them so that you and the plant are happy. 

• Working with individual microclimates within that room – for example, a plant that might work on a coffee table in the middle of a room might not work on a bookshelf next to a window.

• Invaluable information on how to arrange the plants to make stunning arrangements for your home interior. 

The first half of the book focuses on the five key rooms in any home, with ideas for the reader who wants to green up specific rooms, while the second half is a comprehensive directory of house plants. Each entry has information on light level requirements and tolerance, detailed information on care and colour inspiration for styling the plant. Each plant is also rated by difficulty. 

This is the most practical guide to building an indoor garden, room by room, to ensure happy plants, a happy home and happy humans.
