Written in response to readers' requests, "Houseplants Are Houseguests" is a collection of the best of In the Pot, Anne Moore's column which has run for over ten years in the newspapers of the Seacoast Media Group. In addition to her tips for success at gardening indoors, the column reflects her own personal approach to plant care, one of a close and caring relationship -- that gets results. The advice she offers is based on her own experience with all of the plants she writes about, in some cases beginning badly but ending well. Her tips on how to sow seed, take cuttings, prune and divide, set bulbs, and prevent diseases come directly from her own research and experimentation. She frankly shares what works and what doesn't for her. The plants described in this book include popular and well-known houseplants, several associated with major holidays, and a few that are less well known. Moore writes with reverence for these individual personalities, with admiration of their beauty and endurance, and with humor at what is sometimes weird and wild behavior. Her advice to her readers is simple: "If I can do it, so can you!" About the Author Anne Moore is a freelance writer and amateur horticulturist. Her interest in houseplants and container gardening has provided subjects for her column, In the Pot, appearing in newspapers and online, and for numerous magazine articles. Moore is a graduate of Wellesley College where she did not major in botany, but she has educated herself about plants through courses offered by the many horticultural organizations in New England, and by trial and error in her own indoor and outdoor gardens. She is a member of the Garden Club of Brookline, a former trustee of the New England Wild Flower Society, and a member of the Steering Committee of the Wellesley College Friends of Horticulture. She has been an annual exhibitor and award winner in the New England Spring Flower Show sponsored by the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. She has homes in both New Hampshire and Arizona, where she lives with her husband and plants.Website: About the Artist Rebecca Saunders is an artist and photographer who captures the colors and textures of the natural world, whether in a greenhouse or garden, at home or traveling. She has done the line drawings for this book directly from plants in her own collection and from photographs she has taken. "Anne Moore's charming book "Houseplants Are Houseguests" is not only a plant guide full of useful tips, but also sweetly philosophical.A Her eleventh commandment, a think of your plants as people, ' should stand as the guiding principleA for every aspiring green thumb."-- Julie Moir Messervy, author of "Home Outside: A Creating the Landscape You Love" "For more than ten years, readers of Seacoast Media Group newspapers turned to Anne Moore and her In the Pot column for the wisdom of one of the region's greenest thumbs. Know what lithops are? You will if you read Moore's a Stones Get a Life.' In "Houseplants Are Houseguests," Moore once more challenges the expert and encourages the novice to grow their garden imaginations."-- Richard Fabrizio, Managing Editor, Seacoast Media Group "Anne Moore's advice sounds simple: bring out the best in your plants by getting to know them as individuals.A What she's really tempting and guiding us to do in this wonderful book is to become more observant, and to engage with these fascinating organisms we've taken under our care. "Houseplants Are Houseguests" becomes a gateway to the world of plants."-- Kristina N. Jones, Director, Wellesley College Botanic Gardens

"Growing plants indoors serves at least three purposes. It satisfies a common desire to have growing plants the year around. It provides an interesting and challenging hobby for those who attempt to grow an extensive collection of pot plants -- House plants also can play a definite part in interior decoration when varieties are carefully chosen, well grown and properly placed. Regardless of purpose, there are relatively few homes that do not include at least one house plant. House plants vary widely in their ability to thrive under certain house conditions. One objective of this bulletin is to point out the strengths and weaknesses of various indoor plants so that the homemaker may select varieties which are suited to growing conditions in the house. Light, temperature, humidity and frequently the type of fuel used for cooking or heating will influence the degree of success with which potted plants can be grown." p. [397]
