Yes, another plant book, but hear me out: This one’s worth snagging. A wonderful source of inspiration as well as a solid reference to make sure your plants live a long and healthy life. The book is very appealing, both aesthetically and in terms of the information it contains. (Visual examples of various types of sunlight conditions? Yes please!) Since we’re all at home a little bit more nowadays, why not use the time to propagate your favorite plant or add some new beauties to your current household?
