The plant lover who is faced with this ever increasing range will sometimes hesitate to invest in an attractive but unfamiliar plant, not knowing whether it will suit his conditions or how to look after it. This book, by a team of well-known horticultural experts, tells you how to choose and care for over 1000 plants, more than 500 of which are illustrated in full colour. A practical introduction covers all aspects of plant growing in the home, conservatory or greenhouse - cultivation, propagation, how to combat pests and diseases, with a special section devoted to cacti and other succulents. This is followed by 96 pages of colour photographs illustrating some of the more decorative and interesting indoor plants, a descriptive dictionary ,arranged in alphabetical order with common names fully cross referred, completes the contents.'
