The Plant Recipe Book: 100 Living Arrangements for Any Home in Any Season
A follow-up to the widely popular Flower Recipe Book, The Plant Recipe Book is the next great thing in interior plant design, providing simple steps showing anyone how to create stunning living plant decor. Each one of the 100 "recipes" specifies the type and quantity of plants needed; clearly numbered instructions detail each step; and 400 photographs show how to place every stem. Traditional pots and plant containers are used, but so are less conventional vehicles and methods, like shutters and planting under glass. A basic how-to chapter provides planting techniques, a tools and materials list, sourcing and plant care information, and expert advice.

"An ingredient-by-ingredient approach to gardening--container gardening, in this case. . . . Seeing the spare, elegant results, it nearly made our mouth water." --New York Times
"Chapman's new book will be cause for celebration. . . . The horticulture is daring and innovative. . . . A great addition to the library of any gardener; those whose tastes incline toward the small will find this book positively transformative." --Publishers Weekly
"Chapman is a master at creating living plant arrangements. She professes that mini-container gardens rival cut arrangements not only in beauty, but also in their longevity and ability to be repurposed. And, her creations prove it. . . . A feast of information and images, The Plant Recipe Book offers 100 of Chapman's recipes for creating living arrangements at home. Each recipe contains a plant and material ingredient list and easy to follow step-by-step assembly instructions illustrated with stunning images. Accessible to the brown and green thumb alike, the recipes range from a single plant ("on its own") to special occasion arrangements that require a bit more time and several ingredients." --Gardenista
