Looks like a winner! Hopefully the publishers will find your review and link to it. That sounds like a great book! Even though I currently hardly have enough sun to even grow the most shade tolerant succulents, I will add it to my book wishlist. Just in case we move I know what you mean by the old Sunset and Ortho guides.

Publishers are catching on to the greenteriors trend with a whole host of books providing inspirational photographs and genius care tips for your growing house garden. Whether you're struggling to keep a particular plant happy, not sure which variety to choose for your basement flat or wanting to get some dirt under your fingernails with some creative planting projects, we've found a book to help.
The introduction covers all the basics - buying, potting, placing, watering, feeding and how to deal with pests - and the rest covers common houseplants one by one. It has suggestions for plants that suit particular situations, such as compact, low-maintenance plants for your desk. Buy now. This new book from Sophie Lee, founder of the botanical styling company Geo-Fleur, is full of trendy greenteriors porn.
Its first half covers reference information about care and plant types, while the second half is packed with unique projects such as making a wire hanging plant holder for air plants and marbling your own plant pots. This is a book of projects for making, as the title suggests, miniature gardens. Chapters cover creating miniature landscapes in pots, with an illustrated how-to, a care guide and a plant file for each, terrariums, "vertical gardens" such as kokedama and wall gardens, miniature gardens for wildlife, and "productive" miniature gardens for growing edibles such as herbs, leaves and even pineapples.
A creative, fun and inspiring book to get your imagination going. For a detailed look at these brilliant easy-care plants, this guide from the so-called "Queen of Succulents" contains everything you need to know about buying, potting, placing, feeding, watering, propogating and trouble-shooting the plants. The middle section details some of the most creative planting projects we've seen, from planting succulents in a photoframe to hanging on the wall to planting in a carved-out pumpkin.
It ends with a photograph index of different types of succulents, with facts and care details for each. For greenterior inspiration, Wonder Plants is a short, beautiful collection of plant-filled homes from Antwerp to Tokyo, put together by the graphic designer and blogger Irene Schampaert.
The last 50 pages contain practical care tips and trouble-shooting, but this book is at its best for visual examples of how to select and arrange plants to bring your room to life. The agony aunt columns littered throughout aid with issues such as safe plants for pets and when to repot.
The lovely thing about this book is the way it marries instructional guides with celebrating the craft of plant lovers Nik Southern from How Not To Kill Your Plants makes an appearance on pageFor example, the succulent-filled home of gardening writer Francine Raymond is followed by a section on taking cuttings from succulents, and an interview with Emma Sibley of London Terrariums is followed by a "how-to" for making terrariums.
Isabelle Palmer, writer of the blog The Balcony Gardener, is an expert in bringing greenery to small urban spaces. Her second book, The House Gardener has the usual practical tips but is best for its creative projects, such as a moss wall and tiny greenhouse terrarium.
Best for those who want to get their hands a little muddy. House of Plants , by the team behind air plant experts Ro Co, has a gorgeous photo of every houseplant you can imagine, from Monstera to the Fishbone Cactus, with a care guide for each.
The most useful section may well be "The Immortal Companion", which features the ultimate low-maintenance, hardy options. It also features the usual info on care, potting, watering and feeding, and propogating. This tiny book, by the trained horticulturist and author Val Bradley, has crammed every page with projects and care for common household plants. It's particularly good if you've ever struggled to keep an orchid alive or want to grow edibles such as chillies and citrus fruits at home.
Also included are the usual terrariums and hanging plants. A fun, colourful book from the founder of London Terrariums Emma Sibley who also makes an appearance in My Tiny Indoor Garden , this is a sort of photographed index of 60 varieties of cacti and succulents with care information for each. Extra to the usual potting, feeding and positioning tips are information on flowering, things to watch out for for instance, if a plant is poisonous to pets and "did you knows".
Cacti-collectors will enjoy "window" shopping for their next buys. For a real user-friendly, simple guide, How Not to Kill Your Houseplant by Veronica Peerless is your best bet; if you're after something a little trendier and with plenty of inspirational interiors photography alongside all the essential info, Living With Plants gets our vote.

To me, a coffee table book has to be well-designed and stylish. Secondly it has to either be interesting or functional. And fortunately, my list of coffee table books about houseplants ticks all three of these boxes! Read on for my top picks! This book explores the concept of the urban jungle. Wild at Home is not only a feast for the eyes but also includes a range of plant care tips and tricks to get you growing your ultimate urban jungle. Just as the name suggests, this book delves into the healing powers of 80 different houseplants.
The secret to succulent care and growing them successfully is to give them conditions similar to their native habitats, which for the most part are warm, arid and receive minimal rainfall under 20 inches a year. Very few succulents thrive outdoors where temperatures drop below freezing 32 degrees F for extended periods. Cold-hardy varieties are primarily fine-leaved, perennial stonecrops Sedum sp. The rule of thumb is to water succulents thoroughly once a week in summer, twice a month in spring and fall, and monthly during their winter dormancy. Keep succulents on the dry side, and give their roots superb drainage.
