Plant by Numbers
50 Houseplant Combinations to Decorate your SpaceBook - 2014
The inspirational DIY guide for painting a stunning portrait in houseplants. Hot Pink Limeade, Café Au Lait, Raspberry Margarita . . . wait, are we talking about plants here? It's not often that we think of decorative houseplants as 'delicious', but in Plant by Numbers , there's no denying that author Steve Asbell makes his debut as a "gourmet chef" of the floral color palette. With his unique and fun recipe-style approach, visually tantalizing full-color photography, and crystal-clear step-by-step instructions, Asbell takes interior gardening to a sophisticated but foolproof new level. Each of the 50 projects within features a comprehensive shopping list and functional plant-a-gram (that's a custom planting diagram), showing you precisely how to plant the container combinations to achieve the most beautiful results in your living space. Even better, interiorscaping has never been more affordable: you'll impress friends, family, and visitors with your luxurious-looking interior plant designs, and you won't break the bank in the process. You'll be entertained while you do it, too: Asbell's signature wit and original planting projects - with titles like 'Flavor Trippin', 'Jurassic Spark', 'Shower Caddy', and 'Femme Fatale' - make the beautiful designs in Plant by Numbers as much fun to read as they are to plant. With this book as a guide, container gardening really is as simple as making art with a paint-by-numbers kit.
