"Living With Plants is one of those books I wish I had read before I went out and bought a ton of plants years ago. This is one of those books I'll likely reference for years to come, not only because of its useful information on caring for my plants, but also for its beautiful photography, effective styling tips, and the handful of DIY tutorials accompanied with easy-to-follow instructions."
