Houseplants are hot, and creative interior planting is becoming increasingly easy to achieve. The new wave of unusual and dramatic indoor plants is as much about décor and statement as greenery. Used aesthetically, as a focal point and sculptural element in interior design, indoor gardening is not just about possessing or growing a plant, but about using it as an accessory combined with other objects to create a particular style and mood. In this much-needed book, Ian and Kara show you how to transform your home with plants and tells you which plants will work best where and how to care for them. From strikingly geometric terrariums to pretty hanging baskets, practical herb pots and colourful window displays, this book is packed full of exciting and gorgeous ideas. Specially commissioned photography by Nick Pope throughout proves that bringing the outdoors in really is the best form of interior design.

Ever wondered if you could grow bananas - or what else you could grow to get that tropical effect; how to achieve the smells of the Mediterrannean in Cumbria; why Eden grow a certain climber up the banks of the pit: what purpose it serves and whether that might be helpful in your precipitous plot?

You take a fiddle leaf fig and sandwich it between a birds of paradise and a monstera and.... yes!’ You will be armed with the know-how you need to care for your plants, where to place them, how to propagate, how to find the right pot, and much more, and most importantly, how to arrange them so that they look their best.
