Baker & Taylor
An illustrated introduction to plants and how they grow with information on creating a home garden.

McMillan Palgrave
Linnea loves plants. She grows them all over her room - in pots, and crates, even in glass jars.
In this book, she takes you on a tour of her indoor garden. She tells you about her orange tree (and plantable pits and seeds, including melons, tomatoes, and grapes); she shows you how to take a cutting from a Busy Lizzie and how to trim an avocado plant.

And she teaches you what keeps plants satisfied: the art of watering properly (plants don't like standing with their feet in water) and fertilizing. And what to do when plants are attacked by whiteflies or other nasty bugs.

Linnea also makes garden-cress cheese (from homegrown cress, of course); discusses the pleasures and possible pitfalls of growing an amaryllis; and writes a plant newspaper, The Green Gazette.

Linnea's Windowsill Garden will informs and inspire anyone who wants to grow an indoor garden of their own.

& Taylor

Linnea tells how to grow various plants, suggests contests and experiments, and talks about cuttings, watering, the water cycle, bulbs, garden pests, and growing houseplants
