Growing plants in the home have always been popular, and in this volume interior and garden designer, Diana Yakeley, shows how to choose and position plants to create maximum impact, taking into account scale and proportion, form and shape, color and scent, and texture and pattern. There is also guidance on finding just the right containers and accessories to suit different plants and room schemes. A section on interiors looks at each room of the house, in turn, revealing the best plants to create a striking focal point. The remaining chapters are a visual extravaganza of plant displays. Choose from the understated elegance of architectural plants, cacti, and succulents or foliage plants in “Plant Sculpture” or indulge those creative urges with the section on “Color.” “Seasonal Displays” shows how to ring in the changes throughout the year, while “Edible Plants” explains how to grow herbs, salad leaves, and tender fruits indoors.
