Be Your Own House Plant Expert - Dr. D.G. Hessayon - 1970s Indoor Garden Manual - 2nd Edition
Plants bring into the room a breath of life and natural beauty. D.G. Hessayon
It's no wonder that this indoor garden manual and instruction guide is a fascinating read. It was written by D.G. (David Gerald) Hessayon, the world's most popular garden expert and seller of over 50 million copies of gardening books since 1958. A completely devoted lover of botany, D.G. published this booklet in 1974, but it might as well have been yesterday for all the contemporary information it presents. In quick, colorful bursts with lots of imagery and easy to understand instruction, this book is perfect for those in hurry to get their garden growing. From trendy succulents to traditional spider plants, this book appeals to all green thumbers who long to make their garden great.
Intended for nothing but straightforward success in the gardening department, D.G. wasn't interested in wasting anyone's time or any plant's life when it came to selecting the right greenery for the right space. Here in 35 pages, he lays out all the options of possibility when it comes to outdoor plants that thrive in indoor conditions. Touching on specific plant selection, lighting, watering, placement, season change, care and contentment, this is the most comprehensive mini guide, we've ever come across in the Vintage Kitchen. It even beats the internet as far as quickly delivering information on the vast variety of options for the indoor garden. Topics stretch to cut flowers and cutting gardens, as well as container selection and arrangement to ensure a green thumb for everyone.
