KIRKUS REVIEW

Already established as indoor specialists (The House Plant Decorating Book, The Indoor Light Gardening Book), the Elberts now offer these clever ideas for plants as gifts--for convalescence, weddings, holidays, housewarmings, benefit sales, etc. Label a plant with its Latin name, they counsel, and consider both season and recipient: don't give Impatiens in summer when it's common, or pothos to an experienced grower. The plant containers vary from cutesy (an upsidedown umbrella-shaped holder for a shower) to predictable (cache pots, Contac-covered juice cans) and also include some more imaginative ones: there's an old sneaker holding Swedish ivy, an emptied tea can with a spider plant, and some builders' feather rock with a miniature rock garden.
