by Janice Eaton Kilby. Tabletop gardens are a wonderful way to satisfy that gardening urge indoors. This book showcases 30 tabletop projects that will spur your creativity and bring the outdoors inside. There are no stuffy, waxy plants here! In these gardens, plants are combined for stunning effect. There are colorful succulent gardens, herb gardens, terrariums, forced bulbs, a watergarden, cactus garden, a rosemary topiary, zen sand, sensory grass, orchid and curly bamboo gardens, and more! Part of the fun of these gardens is the innovative containers that compliment the plants - salad gardens in vintage enamel ware, a bog garden in an old drawer lined with plastic, a fairy moss and lichen garden on a pretty old plate, for example. Plants with the same basic needs are combined for easy care and there is a good chapter covering basic indoor plant care. Hardcover 128pp Pub at $24.95 Learn More
