From the inside cover:

"This book will give you all the information you need to make the most of house plants; a visual glossary to identify the plant you have in mind but cannot name, schemes for incorporating plants in interior design, using them as screen dividers or to disguise unattractive features, full information on the practicalities of temperature, light and shade, potting and propagation, soils and feeding, pests and diseases, hints on what went wrong and how to put it right. All this, together with a section listing 450 individual plants, identified complete with useful information on their propagation and care, makes The Houseplant Book by far the most comprehensive, useful and inspirational book on indoor gardening available today."
