House plants offer the perfect solution to the urban dweller, lacking in space – indoor and outdoor. They are an easy and stylish way to transform the look and feel of your home.
In Living With Plants, botanical-stylist and plant expert Sophie Lee shows you simple but inspired ways to green-up your home or workspace. Starting with the basics, learn how to pick the right plant for you and your home (and specifically what room), what levels of sunlight your plant needs and the best space for your plants to thrive.
As well as plant-styling inspiration, you will discover how to make your own terrarium, kokedama moss ball and a snazzy macramé plant hanger, as well as innovative ways to dress up your window sill or bookcase. This book also includes a practical guide on plant care, teaching you how to look after your plants correctly: from propagation, watering, pruning, cuttings together with useful tips on how you can revive dying plants and clever ways to keep them alive while you are on holiday!
Packed with original and fun ideas to bring the beauty of nature into your home; Living With Plants will inspire you to get creative with nature and help make your home gorgeously green.
