Driven by the beautiful artwork of Maaike  Koster  (illustrator  and  interior  designer),  alongside Emma Sibley’s  (co-founder  of  UK-based  London  Terrariums)  text,  this  collection of  stunning  illustrations  is  accompanied  by  thoughtful  information.  Each  plant  is rendered in considered detail taking up a full  double  page  spread,  with  half  of  this  space allotted to the illustration, facing a paragraph on its origins, care tips and any  information about fellow species.
This is not meant to  be  an  intimidating  tome;  the  limited  text  and  the  illustrations  will be an initial inspiration. The joy of these plants is that they are easy to  maintain,  and everyone has access to them – you no longer need to have a back garden to turn your hand  to  this  green-fingered  past  time.  Succulents,  cacti,  flowering  and  foliage  plants  are growing everywhere and their ubiquity is  adding  interest,  tranquillity  and  colour  in  every corner of our lives.
