Glorious Indoor Gardens by Michele Driscoll Alioto

Indoor gardens allow us to ignore the inevitability of the seasons and bring natural beauty into our home environments all year round. In Glorious Indoor Gardens, noted garden writer and television personality Michele Driscoll Alioto presents 13 of the most beautiful private interior landscapes in the country.<P>Some of the countrys most talented indoor gardeners share their passion with Alioto -- from an eighty-five-year-old conservationist who presents his magnificent desert collection in Scottsdale, Arizona, to a terrarium-filled New York City loft shared by an astute gardening editor and an administrator at the New York Horticultural Society. Each describes how their indoor garden was developed and why, and what practical problems were overcome. By focusing on the design, history, and family use of each site, and by exploring a wide variety of planting possibilities and garden styles, this volume presents indoor plants not as mere accessories, but as representations of the gardeners lifestyle.<P>Each garden is accompanied by practical tips on relevant topics, such as growing orchids indoors, making light where there isnt any, and hydroponics. An appendix includes detailed information on caring for indoor plants, as well as lists of plants best suited to a variety of situations and resources.<P>-- Features 13 extraordinary indoor gardens from every region of the country -- some never before published<P>-- The recent interest in indoor plants and indoor garden environments is explored by an award-winning garden writer and TV host<P>-- This book shows you that anyone can start an indoor garden -- not even a window is needed
