““You absolutely cannot go wrong by surrounding yourself with greenery.” More profound words have never been said. There is so much good to be gained from having greenery inside your home and enjoying outdoor gardening as well (even if it’s merely a balcony garden). Gardening is good for the soul and good for mental health; it makes an excellent de-stressing agent; it transforms the stale indoor air into cleaner air for healthier breathing; and it is, quite simply, something that is enjoyable on multiple levels. Once you’ve decided to introduce plants into your home, the big question is where to begin and what plants to acquire. There are so many choices in houseplants that it’s best to do some research and see what will grow well in the space you have allocated for your indoor greenery.

“Another good place to start is with a concise guide to indoor gardening. Peter Shepperd’s book, Houseplants 101: How to choose, style, grow, and nurture your indoor plants (The Green Fingered Gardener), is a great resource. Filled with helpful and encouraging advice, the book outlines what to consider regarding growing conditions (light, household humidity, how warm the space is), how to choose what plants are best for your busy schedule and, the best part in my opinion, a lengthy list of potential houseplants complete with a photograph of the plant, a growing guide for each plant and troubleshooting different ailments and bugs. The author also provides a very in-depth list of references for further reading. This is a must-have book for anyone who wants to start or is already an avid indoor gardener.”
