A GOOD READ

Country Living (UK) - - Nature -

Kather­ine Price’s mes­sage in Get Plants (Kew Pub­lish­ing, £25) is that they make our lives richer and she is out to prove it, es­pe­cially to those who don’t yet con­sider them­selves gar­den­ers. This is the ideal book for your stu­dent son or daugh­ter if they lack green fin­gers, as Kather­ine takes a youth­ful and up­beat ap­proach to match­ing plants to per­son­al­ity types. There are ideas for squeez­ing in­door and out­door va­ri­eties onto ter­races, doorsteps and win­dowsills, plus care tips from the au­thor, an ex­pe­ri­enced Kew gar­dener.
