Hands up if you've killed a plant? Yep, me too. It's no secret that we've all become plant obsessed, but do we really understand how to look after them? I am not a Professor of Botany, but having run my florist and plant shop, Grace & Thorn, since 2011 I've learnt a few things along the way. HOW NOT TO KILL YOUR PLANTS is about taking the hocus-pocus out of plants and flowers and enabling you to understand a plant's needs in order to know where to place and how to style them, but most importantly how to keep them alive. I get asked every type of question you can imagine and I have written this book to answer them. Watering can down, it's time to go back to the roots. Keep it green. Nik x (AKA The Agony Plant)

The Indestructible Houseplant, by garden writer Tovah Martin, eliminates the guesswork by highlighting indoor plants that are tough, beautiful, reliable, and readily available. Like hoya, a low-maintenance plant whose spectacular spring and summer blossoms actually thrive on neglect. Or Ficus elastica (also known as rubber tree), whose pink and gray leaves will brighten even the most challenging windowless environment. And castiron plant, an old favorite that remains beautiful in a shady corner, even after weeks without water. In addition to plant profiles with concise information on water, light, and blooming times, this gorgeous book includes tips on care, maintenance, and ideas for combining houseplants in eye-catching indoor displays.
