A stunning collection of indoor plants, including: flowering, cacti, succulents and foliage with stunning illustrations and authoritative text.

Driven by the beautiful artwork of Maaike Koster (illustrator and interior designer), alongside Emma Sibley's (founder of UK-based London Terrariums) text, this collection of stunning illustrations is accompanied by thoughtful information. Each plant is rendered in considered detail, facing a paragraph on its origins, care tips and any information about fellow species.

The joy of these plants is that they are easy to maintain, and everyone has access to them - you no longer need to have a back garden to turn your hand to this green-fingered past time. Succulents, cacti, flowering and foliage plants are growing everywhere; in our homes, work places, bars and shops.

Their ubiquity is adding interest, tranquillity and colour in every corner of our lives. Across 70 different plants, originating from every corner of the world, Maaike and Emma have collected a wide variety to tempt even the most timid of gardeners.

For those with a full-time job along with everything else, Urban Botanics is made to fit alongside our modern-day schedules. Even if the closest you ever get to one of these plants is turning these pages, you will find much to admire and inspire in the striking illustrations. A must for lovers of art and verdant foliage alike.
