The Plant Society Design Handbook is a book in three parts:
  • First, it presents pictorial guides to plants and planters. Defining their form and illustrating how they grow and matching planters to plants, textures and tones. It also talks through how to start; how to budget; how to establish the basis of your design.
  • Second, it is a handbook of blueprints and recipes for people who consider plants an important player in a well-styled urban home but want expert help choosing and executing a vision. The 50 blueprints and recipes include illustrations, photography, floor plans where applicable, a kit of parts much like an Ikea installation guide, a shopping list (including plant types, planter shapes, potting mix types), and an ongoing care sheet. Examples include: a simple potted eco-system; potted cluster gardens; the minimal balcony; the Mediterranean balcony; the tiny terrace with herbs and citrus; the lush, narrow fence line; the indoor winter garden; the indoor hanging garden; the fresh living room; beside clusters; and the green workspace.
  • Third, is the essential guide to a flourishing garden: pruning; deadheading; repotting; aerating; espalier; feeding for flower and produce; pest prevention; seasonality; understanding plant types; when to plant; and when to sow.
