Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* No longer is there any excuse for not using foliage and flowers inside a home. According to author, expert garden designer, and TV host Smith, simply pick from the 63 ways to connect with nature. Each tip, a few paragraphs in length, is an exhortation of sorts, ranging from set a scene and adopt a no-fail houseplant (hint: mothers’-in-law tongues work even in the dimmest of light) to cluster containers for bold effect and show off plant’s stem. Lavish color photographs illustrate almost every tip. Not enough? Look for two-sentence (or so) boxed advice. Or a series of sidebars headlined Collections, with notes and pictures on such discoveries as begonias, Paris porcelain, and baskets, among many others. Want even more? A generous handful of recipes, paperwhites in a glass container and harvest home display, for two, enable more creative gardeners to showcase easy-to-complete handiwork.A fun-filled how-to retort to those who claim the black-thumb syndrome. Resources guide; suggested readings. --Barbara Jacobs

Once again, the sheer genius of this man shines through as he shares the wonderful information he has gathered over the years! Loaded with full color pictures, fun and interesting ideas. (even a recipe for Chess Pie) I especially like all the small details. I'm so glad I purchased this book!

I did not give it 5 stars due to the fact I expected more gardening advice, but that is my mistake; not the books. It is a great how to decorating guide for the crafty person.

We own quite a few P. Allen Smith books, and each one is beautifully done. This one is no exception. If he personifies southern hospitality, I'd like to move to the South! Just a great coffee table book and one that will be read often.

Excellent book, lived up to my expectations beautifully. Great fan of this guy, like his tv show also. He does a nice mix of decor, garden, and food.
