Yates Top 50 Indoor Plants
And How Not To Kill Them!

Angie Thomas & Yates Australia

The top 50 indoor houseplants for Australia and New Zealand what’s best and how to keep them healthy.

Bring the outdoors in and breathe new life to your home with plants! House plants are well and truly back on trend — they instantly lift an area, make a room feel fresh and welcoming, and brighten your mood.

On top of this, indoor plants are great for purifying the air and creating a healthier home. Together with microbes in the soil, plants work wonders to reduce harmful pollutants released from indoor furniture. (It’s true: look at the study conducted by the University of Technology, Sydney.)

If you feel like your rooms need a splash of colour and a breath of life, there’s no better starting point than this book. Whether your style is dramatic jungle plants or to sweetly shaped succulents, you’ll find something to suit.

With loads of glorious illustrations for inspiration, data on which plants are suitable where, and clear advice on how to pot, prune and pet your plants, this is the perfect guide for bringing the outdoors in – no matter what your level of gardening skill!

Angie Thomas is a horticultural consultant to Yates, and is passionate about the health and benefits of gardening, and about teaching and inspiring people how to garden. She is also mad about growing food and filling her house with indoor plants.
