There are plenty of books on how to look after houseplants but no one has shown us how and when and why these plants came to be found in our homes. In this fascinating book we learn how potted plants are as subject to fashion as pieces of furniture. For the Victorians it was the aspidistra in the front parlour; for us it is the orchid in the designer loft. We find that Wedgwood created a market for special bulb pots and that some of Conran's early designs were for houseplant containers. Then there is the story of mignonette - a modest plant but once prized in every home for its intoxicating scent. Now that scent is lost to us for ever. Catherine Horwood's novel combination of social history, plant history and the history of interior design is intriguing. Her illustrations come from a variety of unusual sources since potted plants can be found in many unexpected corners.

Plants are the lungs of the earth: they produce the oxygen that makes life possible, add precious moisture, and filter toxins. Houseplants can perform these essential functions in your home or office with the same efficiency as a rainforest in our biosphere. In research designed to create a breathable environment for a NASA lunar habitat, noted scientist Bill Wolverton discovered that houseplants are the best filters of common pollutants, such as ammonia, formaldehyde and benzene - chemicals released by furniture, carpets, building materials and photocopiers and then trapped by closed ventilation, leading to a host of respiratory and allergic problems now called Sick Building Syndrome. Here Dr Wolverton shows you how to grow 50 plants as accessible and trouble-free as the tulip and Boston fern. He rates each plant for its effectiveness in removing various pollutants. Studies show we spend around 80% of our lives indoors which means good indoor air is vital for good health. How to Grow Fresh Air will show you how to purify the environment that has the most impact on you.

House stagers and decorators know that well placed plants add value to a home. In Indoor Plant Decor, the authors show how to design with plants and containers to enhance one's personal style. The book is divided into 8 style categories, like “Peaceful Zen,” “Classic Elegance,” Modern Eclectic,” and “Vintage Vibe” - with photo collages of style elements, easy DIY projects, plant and container selection, and care tips for all environments and seasons.

Piet Oudolf's gardens excite the senses and stir the emotions. Representing a giant step forward from the conventional colour-themed border, this new approach to gardening gives just as much emphasis to form, texture, light and movement as it does to colour. Individual plants are used as harmonious elements in luxuriant and atmospheric plantings. Written in collaboration with Noël Kingsbury, Designing with Plants is an informative and visually breathtaking study of Piet Oudolf's planting theory and practice, and it provides all the advice necessary to create the same effects in your own garden.Beginning with the building blocks of planting design, a visual sourcebook of Planting Palettes illustrates some of the huge choice available in terms of form, texture and colour. The following chapter explains, with the use of planting plans and diagrams, how to combine these basic elements to create stunning and sculptural planting schemes. Theory is put into practice in Planting Moods in which stunning photography demonstrates how to create a particular feeling or atmosphere, and Year-Round Planting emphasizes the importance of choosing plants to give value throughout the seasons so that they contribute to the garden in death as well as in life. Rounding off with a detailed directory of key plants, Designing with Plants is destined to become an inspiration to all gardeners who wish to create, in Piet's words, 'an impression and an expression of nature'.
