For years, P. Allen Smith has been my favorite gardener to watch and read. He has two shows on PBS that I TiVo and watch weekly; he also has 5 books. I just picked up his fifth book, and it is just as fabulous as his others – P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home, P. Allen Smith’s Container Gardens, P. Allen Smith’s Colors for the Garden and P. Allen Smith’s Living in the Garden Home.
Houseplants have some real health benefits that go beyond aesthetic appeal. They also absorb odors and fumes, replenish the air with oxygen and humidity, and keep the temperatures cool and conducive for better sleep.
