Driven by the beautiful artwork of Maaike Koster (illustrator and interior designer), alongside Emma Sibley's (co-founder of UK-based London Terrariums) text, this collection of stunning illustrations is accompanied by thoughtful information. Each plant is rendered in considered detail taking up a full double page spread, with half of this space allotted to the illustration, facing a paragraph on its origins, care tips and any information about fellow species. This is not meant to be an intimidating tome; the limited text and the illustrations will be an initial inspiration. The joy of these plants is that they are easy to maintain, and everyone has access to them - you no longer need to have a back garden to turn your hand to this green-fingered past time. Succulents, cacti, flowering and foliage plants are growing everywhere and their ubiquity is adding interest, tranquillity and colour in every corner of our lives.
