4.0 étoiles sur 5 Fun Ruminations On Unexpected Genera 14 avril 2017
Par P - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A good book, if I don't feel like the target audience. I'm not an outdoor gardener looking to liven chilly months with overwintered outdoor plants. As a cramped apartment dweller, none of my plants can get a summer break outdoors, and Tovah's admonishment that no one needs grow lights just isn't the case with only northern windows. Nevertheless, some of her suggestions will do well with a northwestern window and some aggressive pruning to combat etoilation, from prior experience.

Moreso than a guide to particular plants, however, this book is a guide to how to get houseplants to work for you. From my own experience, you really do need to -love- your plants to make them live. My finicky maidenhairs are resplendent with fronds, and the temperamental tropicals are taking over, but the humdrum, basic begonia has only two leaves, and the "can you take care of this for me until I can take it back -- (five years later it's still here)" Aloe is going brown. Tovah also explains her particular situation, and repeats it often - cold, dim winters, and summers outdoors. And this is important - as she highlights - because you really need to know your home's environment to know what plants to keep (and where).

My own thoughts have never jived with the "disposable houseplant" ideology, as best evidenced by some hyacinth I forced in February that is still in my kitchen (why cut down the leaves if it's still growing?). But she makes a good case for growing some plants I've always wanted indoors, even though I have no outdoors they can head to after that.

There's a decent focus on flowers, which I can't do because of allergic-to-everything housemates, in case that is also your situation, be forewarned. Of course, flowers are the big attention-grabbers in any garden, so it makes sense.

Of the "plants that are sold as houseplants" expect to see few of the "easy care" options, but of course, that's kind of the point-- dracaenas are never unexpected. Many are the notoriously difficult: gardenias, jasmines, calatheas and croton get mentions, but the easy-for-any-conditions-plants are mostly pepperomias, bromiliads and sanseviera. Admittedly, quite a few of the plants are still easy, but they are usually sold for outdoor purposes, or mail-order-only exotics.

There's a bit about basic care near the end, and it's decent. She is the sort who keeps everything organic - pesticides, dirt, etc. So don't expect tables about which chemical for what pest or whathaveyou.

As for my critiques: well, as mentioned earlier, this book seems to -expect- a house to work with. Since she keeps few plants indoors for the summer, many of her choices would be exceedingly impermanent in dim indoor lighting. She wants you to have an eastern- or western- exposure (or maybe south). Since she doesn't run much heat, she seems to underestimate how much some plants need humidity that they just won't get in the average home. All the photos, though beautiful, look staged. I want to see where the plant grows day-in and day-out, so that I can judge the light it's getting versus what I can give it.

Other than those modest complaints, the book is fun funny, and maybe it can light a passion in your heart to try houseplants again!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great indoor gardening book 7 décembre 2014
Par Kim Willis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is an excellent read for any gardener. If you think you don't like houseplants you need to read this book. Ms Martin covers some typical houseplants but not all of the common ones. She does inspire you to try some plants indoors you may not have considered using as houseplants, such as tender evergreens and ornamental grasses. There are brief care tips at the end of each species covered but the book isn't a detailed houseplant care book. If you are a beginning gardener with basic houseplant questions this may not be the book you are looking for. But if you are a gardener all seasons of the year and enjoy reading about someone's experiences with and thoughts on plants and need some inspiration to create a beautiful indoor garden, read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New ideas and inspiration 26 février 2014
Par IrisRose - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was delighted with Tovah Martin's book for several reasons. Of course the illustrations are both lovely and practical. The photography both sets off the plants and shows realistically how a plant can be placed in the home. There are a number of plants that I have grown, but the book gave me both hints for their care and new ideas.

What I like best about the book its this: Martin's plants are real! obviously she knows how to bring out the best in a plant. But her specimens are definitely not the typical overlush, over fertilized, over pruned, root bound house plants plants bought in floral shops, nurseries, and big stores. They are real. Now that I have read her book, I don't have to feel inferior because my beloved plants do not look like magazine illustrations. They are happy and healthy and natural looking, as Martin's plants are.

The book also inspired me to try some plants that I have not grown before--including some not in the book! Why not! If bulbs can be forced indoors during winter, then some vines or woodland plants might be just the thing for a bare space or a low-lit corner of the house. A good book inspires you not only with what is in it, but with what your mind can do with the ideas it germinates.
Martin's use of different pot shapes is delightful, and I will certainly vary some pots now, although I try to keep to a strict color scheme for the pots.

Her arrangement of plants by season is unusual and helpful in a new way. But, understand, that you won't find the usual index of plants that like sun, like dry, etc. The information is all in the descriptions of the plant, but you'll need to read the text to discover it.

Finally, the prose is lovely. Martin is enthusiastic and lyrical about her plants. The information for growing them is embedded in the charm of her descriptions. I enjoyed her writing on both the level of helpful text and beautiful writing about a subject dear to her.

I would not recommend this book for the conventional basic how-to plant guide. But I strongly recommend it as a beautiful addition to a nicely stocked library on plants and gardening for a fresh and helpful guide providing new ideas.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Lovely Tovah Housplant Book 13 octobre 2013
Par Juana Moore-overmyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
All Tovah Martin books are pretty great, I'd recommend this one for people who want help thinking outside traditional planters and pots. It has seasonal and exposure approaches to bringing the outdoors inside all year round. If, like me, you don't have tons of room, or many 'good' unobstructed southern exposures, she can help you sort out looking at plants in a new way. If you've repeatedly failed with a certain plant, the section on the ones she just can't make work will comfort you - or cause you to gloat!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ...an enjoyable read and reference 7 janvier 2014
Par Artful Muse - Publié sur Amazon.com

Just completed a wonderful "garden room" space in our home over the holidays. The Unexpected Houseplant arrived at the perfect time! Received the book yesterday, during the arctic blast that has hit the Midwest, Northeast/Mid-Atlantic and even into the South...and enjoyed the evening curled up in a blanket reading this book in my inspired garden room appreciating the plant life around me and planning for a few recommended additions. Thoroughly enjoyed the informative nature and the conversational style each section provides. The one houseplant reference book that will remain the go to...written in a manner that will "stick" in my head. Will be sure to recommend to my family/friends. Well done!
