Dr Hessayon's books on house plant care and flower arranging have sold a world record-breaking 16 million copies.

Ornaments - t decor features which change the look of the room. We can do so much more with living plants. Dr Hessayon's new book reveals the craft of Roomscaping. This is the way plants and cut flowers can be used to add beauty to a room in the way we use plants when we landscape our gardens. In its pages the basics of design are clearly explained, and the magical effect of grouping indoor plants together in Pot Groups and Indoor Gardens is described and illustrated.
