Simple, easy to find the plants as they appear alphabetically... Basic advice but that's all I needed so I could look after my houseplants at work and advise customers on basic care when asked..

Disapointment. 25 April 2014
By jay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The print in the book is so small I need to use a magnifying glass to read it and I have pretty good eyes. Also it does not have very many commen plants in it. What kind of book on plants does not list the Ponytail Palm? All the plants are listed by their scientific name rather the commen name. Just a very big disapointment.

Book is great 22 May 2014
By Dawn B. Connor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I particularly liked the fact that the plants are in alphabetical order according to their COMMON names that I know them by not the horticultural names. Recently purchased another houseplant book and the only way I could recognize what I was looking for was by the picture. This book gives good advice on Gift Plants (for the most part throw them away when they finish blooming) and other odd information that is very helpful. I recommend this book highly to those who are just ordinary house plant owners and would like some plain advice on how to get the most out of their plants

This is a beautiful book. I enjoy looking through it, but I haven't learned much from it.
