Leaf Supply - Lauren Camilleri
Fresh flowers are great – everyone loves receiving them. But inevitably they’re already on the way out the door (and into the bin!) by the time they arrive. Plants – living, breathing, life sustaining plants – are where it’s at! Sydney-based authors Lauren Camilleri and Sophia Kaplan really want you to fall in love with indoor gardening and growing as much as they do. Leaf Supply profiles and provides comprehensive (but easy to follow) care instructions for 100 houseplants – including tropical plants, palms, hanging plants, succulents, cacti, and more unusual varieties such as airplants and carnivorous plants – ensuring you learn and grow as your plant grows.
But much more than a plant guide, Leaf Supply also gives interior styling advice on choosing the rights pots for your plants – both aesthetically and practically – as well as best utilising your space, and making the most of your indoor greenery, as well as advice on pet-friendly (as well as harmful) plants for your home. The book also profiles 10 tastemakers from creative fields who have integrated indoor greenery into their homes and workplaces – to give the reader a real insight into how plants can be used in everyday life.
This is a comprehensive guide for any budding greenthumb interested in greening their apartment or inside their home
