A follow-up to the widely popular "Flower Recipe Book," "The Plant Recipe Book" is the next great thing in interior plant design, providing simple steps showing anyone how to create stunning living plant decor. Each one of the 100 recipes specifies the type and quantity of plants needed; clearly numbered instructions detail each step; and 400 photographs show how to place every stem. Traditional pots and plant containers are used, but so are less conventional vehicles and methods, like shutters and planting under glass. A basic how-to chapter provides planting techniques, a tools and materials list, sourcing and plant care information, and expert advice.
