Plants are the lungs of the earth: they produce the oxygen that makes life possible, add precious moisture, and filter toxins. Houseplants can perform these essential functions in your home or office with the same efficiency as a rainforest in our biosphere. In research designed to create a breathable environment for a NASA lunar habitat, noted scientist Bill Wolverton discovered that houseplants are the best filters of common pollutants, such as ammonia, formaldehyde and benzene - chemicals released by furniture, carpets, building materials and photocopiers and then trapped by closed ventilation, leading to a host of respiratory and allergic problems now called Sick Building Syndrome. Here Dr Wolverton shows you how to grow 50 plants as accessible and trouble-free as the tulip and Boston fern. He rates each plant for its effectiveness in removing various pollutants. Studies show we spend around 80% of our lives indoors which means good indoor air is vital for good health. How to Grow Fresh Air will show you how to purify the environment that has the most impact on you.

We have grown so accustomed to sharing our houses with plants that it may be surprising to learn that it was only in the last century that plants began to move indoors. The story of how this came to pass is an engrossing and complex one, involving many separate strands: the horticultural explosion of the Victorian period, stimulated by the plant hunters of the golden age, changing styles of architecture, new techniques of heating and lighting, the cultural values implicit in home design and decoration, and the changing role of women. Tovah Martin weaves these strands together in a chronological account of the introduction of houseplants in America, starting with the first bulbs brought indoors for forcing, through the successive introductions of ever more exotic plant materials, including the proliferation of ferns. It is a story equally rich in plant lore and insights into American culture. Once Upon a Windowsill is one of those books that manage, through a perceptive examination of a seemingly "odd" topic, to shed surprising light on a much larger subject. This is an important and fascinating work of social history.
