We are delighted to announce that we are adding a third book to our range, ‘Houseplants a Practical Guide to their Selection and Care’. Laid out in the same easy to use way as ‘Cut Flowers’ & ‘Cut Foliage’ our houseplant book features over 120 of the most popular green and flowering plants, Succulents, Cacti, Orchids and Bromeliads.

Arranged in alphabetical order of botanical names (with an index of common names at the back) each plant is photographed in full colour with comprehensive instructions on watering, light and temperature requirements, feeding, winter care and how to identify and deal with any problems.

To help the houseplant novice there are tips on houseplant care basics, followed by more detailed information on Bromeliads, Cacti, Ferns, Orchids, Palms and Succulents. There is advice on how to care for mixed planted designs, indoor bulbs and terrariums, plus a brief guide to composts and repotting. Two pages are devoted to the most common pests and diseases and there is a full glossary of botanical terms.

For the horticultural student, plant families and genus are included on each page, and the houseplants selected cover 95% of the current City & Guilds syllabus.

‘I am so thrilled to finally have my third book in print, it’s taken a while, but I feel that we now have a great trilogy of helpful, practical guides and I hope that the houseplant book will be as well received as ‘Cut Flowers’ & ‘Cut Foliage’. Su Whale, author and publisher.

Enjoy your flowers!

Su has created a handbook that should be an essential piece of equipment for every floral art/floristry/gardening student in the world not to mention florists, flower arrangers, brides and hobbyists too. This little book covers more than 150 flower varieties in normal use for arranging and tells you about availability, vase life, tips on arranging in the home and suitability for weddings etc. We have watched in admiration as Su tackled this very necessary subject matter and have been privileged to watch the project's development. The photography by Mark Follon is quite superb!
