You can find plant books about gardening, decorating and plant care on our website now!

Gardening

Houseplants are more popular than ever before—especially with millennials, who are setting up their homes for the first time and discovering that nothing can add energy, style, and that essential “lived-in-ness” to their spaces better than a little bit of green. Whether it’s a statement-making fiddle-leaf fig or a tiny tabletop succulent, a houseplant instantly elevates the look of your home. But where to begin?

Gardening Under Lights

Gardening Under Lights by Leslie F. Halleck details everything a gardener or hobbyist needs to know to garden indoors. This guide to grow lights even features the Aspect Indoor Plant Light on several occasions.

Part One starts with the basics of photosynthesis, the science of light, and how to accurately measure how much light a plant needs. Part Two provides an overview of the most up-to-date tools and gear available. Parts Three and Four offer tips and techniques for growing popular ornamental plants (orchids, succulents, bonsai, and more) and edible plants (arugula, cannabis, oregano, tomatoes, and more) independent of the constraints of volatile outdoor conditions.

Gardening Under Lights is a highly-detailed, accessible guide for seed starters, plant collectors, and anyone who wants to successfully garden indoors.

“This scientifically grounded yet accessible book is an essential guide to just about anything we might want to grow indoors.” —Kelly Norris, director of horticulture and education at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden

“This book nails it! Everything from breathtaking yet practical ways to grow your own food to basic starts for your indoor or outdoor garden.” —Bren Haas, founder of Creative Living with Bren Haas and host of GardenChat

Decorating

In Decorating with Plants, Baylor Chapman walks readers through everything they need to know to bring houseplants into their home.

First, there’s Plant Care 101: from how to assess light conditions to tricks for keeping your plants alive while on vacation. Chapman gives readers the simple, foundational info they need to ensure their plants will thrive. Then she introduces us to 28 of her favorites— from the eye-catching Rubber Tree to the delicate Cape Primrose.

Finally, she guides readers through the home room by room. Place an aromatic plant like jasmine or gardenia to your entry to establish your home’s “signature scent.” Add a proper sense of scale to your living room with a ceiling-grazing palm. Create a living centerpiece of jewel-toned succulents for a dining table arrangement that will last long after your dinner party. From air purification to pest control, there’s no limit to what houseplants can do for your home.

Decorating with Plants is here to show you how to add them to spaces big and small with style.

“Chapman tackles the houseplant craze and cuts through the noise. Her tips are practical and always given with an eye towards creating beautiful spaces in your home.”–Sunset

At last! A book where savvy interior design and houseplant smarts intersect with finesse. Your home will be more beautiful, your life will be uplifted.”
–Tovah Martin, author of The Unexpected Houseplant
