      I got this as a present for my mother but I like so much I think I’ll get one for me too.
      She recently got into houseplants so I think it will be helpful to her especially as it’s explained in such simple terms.
      Some said it’s vague but unfortunately it’s my experience that some plants if overwatered or underwatered can have similar symptoms.
      Overall I think it’s very helpful.

      An excellent and informative book, but what really impressed me was the sheer volume of content packed into what appears a fairly small book. Loads of houseplants are discussed with handy cross reference guides to other similar types, lots of helpful pictures, it’s a really interesting and informative book.

      Thanks to the illustrations and layout it makes a great gift.

    3. Meditator

      I’m a new plant mom and I wanted a book that I could research about new plants I got it, and I need to say this: this book is more than helpful, I’m super satisfied with the price and quality of the hardcover too

    10. Amazon Customer

      I bought this after borrowing a copy from my friend and loving it. It’s extremely helpful for simplifying plant care and has helpful pictures. I’ve made some changes to my plants that I had thought were fairly happy and am already seeing improvements!

    11. Meditator

      Really helped me figure out how to take care of my plants! Super practical and easy to understand. Totally recommend this book.

    12. Nicola Beaumont

      Easy to understand and pictures of plants also helpful.

    13. Jodie Kuncken

      I love this book. It gives you a little bit of everything from how to purchase a plant how to feed it and water it. How much sun it needs what to do if it gets bugs how to trim my back. It even includes the types of plans for a working fireman, lol lighting or even direct lighting. There’s pictures with every page so you have a idea of different plans, well worth the money, and I refer back to this book often especially after I purchase a new plant. Five star in my opinion.
