Reading Material #003

by Culti-Vate

I found this little book lurking in a local charity shop, for just £1.00. It may be a little dated but I couldn’t resist. It is packed full of useful knowledge, with chapter titles such as ‘choosing house plants’, ‘kinds of house plants’, ‘general care of house plants’ & a list of other books to read that give further information.
If you have no garden or a very tiny garden then house plants are your way of bringing plants into your life. 
The foreword sets the tone of the book really, “Unlike outdoor gardening, the work is not dependent upon weather conditions, nor is time taken up by irksome, seldom enjoyed, tasks such as mowing, weeding, sweeping, hedge-clipping, digging & staking.” JC
