The most practical, workable book on house plants that I've seen. Most of them defeat me by their assumption of codless time, space and funds. This one takes into consideration limitations of all three, and suggests the hows, whys, whats wheres and whons of house plants, so that whether you have one room or a house, your needs are considered. Then in adequate detail -- again assuming not too technical a knowledge, the authors outline plans for preparation, care, control of pests, specific care of specific plants, propagation by roots and cuttings, etc. Excellent photographs -- glossary -- calendar of choros -- and an index.
