Product Description

Review

“An ingredient-by-ingredient approach to gardening—container gardening, in this case. . . . Seeing the spare, elegant results, it nearly made our mouth water.” —New York Times

“Chapman’s new book will be cause for celebration. . . . The horticulture is daring and innovative. . . . A great addition to the library of any gardener; those whose tastes incline toward the small will find this book positively transformative.” —Publishers Weekly

“Chapman is a master at creating living plant arrangements. She professes that mini-container gardens rival cut arrangements not only in beauty, but also in their longevity and ability to be repurposed. And, her creations prove it. . . . A feast of information and images, The Plant Recipe Book offers 100 of Chapman's recipes for creating living arrangements at home. Each recipe contains a plant and material ingredient list and easy to follow step-by-step assembly instructions illustrated with stunning images. Accessible to the brown and green thumb alike, the recipes range from a single plant ("on its own") to special occasion arrangements that require a bit more time and several ingredients." —Gardenista

HASH(0xa42a82f4) out of 5 stars Big on inspiration, less so on education April 24 2014
By Dianne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is a lot to love here. The arrangements are truly stunning and original. The author is very specific about the size of the plants that go into each "recipe" as well as how long you can expect it to last. My book is already well peppered with post-its. What isn't as clear is that A LOT of the plants are difficult to find. Don't assume you can bookmark a recipe and trot down to your local nursery to get what you need. I had my heart set on several arrangements but could only find about half of what was required. Undeterred, I went home and searched the internet for several hours, only to find that things were currently unavailable or were more readily available overseas. There is almost no mention in the book regarding the rarity or seasonality of specimens. Seasoned gardeners might be more aware of these things, but I'm just a newbie with a lot to learn. An appendix or source list would've been a great addition. I'd give this book 5 stars for the beauty of it, but just 3 stars for the "recipe" part.

HASH(0xa39f87ec) out of 5 stars Inspiring and beautiful! May 16 2014
By Chase - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I’ve got a collection of container garden books and this ones shines light on new ideas - interesting plants and fun containers = innovative designs. The step by step instructions showed me how to arrange plants - in ways that I’ve not thought of before…Furniture webbing, a staple gun and plants make for an amazing garland, who knew? Wow.

HASH(0xa448e900) out of 5 stars Stunning Book May 29 2014
By Jyllybean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beautiful photos and chock full of inspiring arrangements. I have been making little cactus and succulent plant arrangements for a year or so and this book has given me plenty of ideas on how to 'up the ante' and make them more eye-popping. Not to mention the care of them...a turkey baster for watering? Brilliant!

HASH(0xa3d5aca8) out of 5 stars Wonderful combinations of growing plants with detailed instructions! May 21 2015
By Tamara Kraig - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Gorgeous pictures of arrangements composed of potted plants. Every project has detailed step by step instructions. There are lots of beautiful creative arrangements that will grow for weeks or more in the house. This book should give you lots of great ideas to combine plants to make them much more fascinating than a single pot of, say, rabbit's foot fern. This book is a lot of fun!

HASH(0xa3d193fc) out of 5 stars This book is perfect for me! March 3 2015
By Donna J Hoots - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is perfect for me! I'm not creative enough to design my own arrangements, but I can follow directions very well. The photos are beautiful and each recipe comes with a clear list of recommended container, potting mix, and plants, even in what order to place the plants in the pot. I've followed several recipes and truly enjoy each one! So professional looking!
