Book Description

At one time or another most everyone had a plant or two in their house or apartment. If you have a bit of a green thumb, your plants grew and offered you hours of enjoyment. Heck, perhaps you even had a name for each plant. Yes, you are indeed the talented ones who can grow just about anything anywhere.

Then there is the beginner houseplant owner who with the best of intention looked on in dismay as they watched their plants slowly wither away eventually becoming nothing more than a dried stick. It is for you guys and gals who have little or no knowledge on how to keep a houseplant alive I have written this book.

Our journey will take you through what kind of plants are best for your home and what you need to know to keep them healthy and vibrant.

You will also learn which plants are toxic to children and pets as well as which plants are safe for your home.

As a beginner houseplant owner you might feel a little overwhelmed with so much information. Therefore, I have added a handy tip sheet near the end of the book you can print from your computer and keep as a handy reference.

For those Kindle owners whose Kindle readers are in black and white, I have included a link to my web site where you can see full color pictures of most of the plants discussed in this book.

It is my hope that by the time you finish reading this book, you too will have developed your green thumb and grow vibrant house plants that will be the envy of anyone who visits your home.

Editorial Reviews


Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite
"Growing House Plants for the Beginner Enthusiast" is a guide for any garden enthusiast. The author covers all the areas that a beginner would like to know. I personally liked the chapters explaining the requirements needed for each plant to remain healthy.
I especially liked how the book extensively covers the type of pests that can attack your plant and how to save them. The book also includes plant diseases as well as plants that are poisonous for children, adults and pets.The topic is handled well with elan and simplicity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a helpful book at all April 21, 2013
By r.jones

This book was a little too beginner for me. I don't know much about plants, but even I knew what was in this book. I was hoping for photos of the plants to help me recognize them at the store, but no such luck. I really would have liked to have them in the part about pet and child friendly plants. But for a book that was free, I guess I was expecting too much.

More About the Author

I am a bit of an old codger who has seen my share of life and and now I devote most of my retirement years tending my garden patch. It's probably the one thing I did get a good handle on throughout my years of life.

I don't tend to be much of an expert on most things in life, but I do know a thing or two about gardening.

During the spring and through until fall, I am mostly found out tending to my vegetable garden patch.

For a gardener, then comes the long dreary months waiting for spring to arrive and yes, back out to prepare my garden for planting.

I do however, put the winter months to good use by adding new articles for beginner gardeners on my website

Recently, I decided to try my hand writing books for the beginner gardener, and just recently published my first book on Amazon titled "Growing House Plants for the Beginner Enthusiast."

I do hope you find it informative to help you keep your indoor plants healthy and vibrant.

What now? Well, I am starting a new book yes, for the beginner on "How to Grow a Successful Vegetable Garden."

But that may have to wait for a while as spring has arrived hear in Arizona and you'll know where I'll be.
