A windowsill is among the best possible places to put a plant — it provides ample sunlight, brightens the look of your home from the outside, and adds what amounts to a filter to the air coming in and out of your home. In winter, they can add a touch of color to an otherwise drab view, and in summer they thrive. But, not every plant grows well in these conditions – with as many as 40 percent of most houseplants according to Garden Guides not needing nearly that much sunlight. The selection of the right houseplants for your windowsill is a necessary step to ensuring they survive and thrive.

This book will guide you through the steps needed to select the perfect plants for your windowsill and cultivate them to both fit in with your space and to survive the conditions, whether inside or outside. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively plant windowsill plants and improve how your home and your windows look to the world outside. You will learn, through a series of detailed charts, which plants are best suited to the cramped space of a windowsill and which ones will only give you problems. You will learn how much light each plant needs and how much water and food they need and whether you need to supplement natural provision of these resources. You will learn how to care for your plants while keeping away pests and animals that may eat the leaves or dig up the dirt.

Top experts in gardening have been interviewed and their insights will help you learn what works and what doesn’t work for your windowsill plants. From first planting, whether by seed or potted plant, you will have every resource you need to keep your windowsill plants alive and thriving in their new environment with this book.

Great book Love this book, it’s very informative, I’m not a natural green thumb so this is very helpful, my kids also enjoy reading about the different types of house plants.

Nice reference for housekeeping plants! I have not been able to have houseplants for some time, my previous home wasn’t optimal for “window-scaping”. Now I have three directions, East, West and North in my apartment for sunshine ability. And a nice Eastern walkway. So, in my search for small-scale gardening I found this book. I enjoy the information given and the simplicity, down-to-earth style. Also, that it has a Kindle version!
