We love a good ‘how to’ book and we love a coffee table book even more. So when we find a beautiful coffee table book that is full of helpful tips and tricks, you better believe we will snap that baby up!
Even though we are surrounded by plants literally all day every day, we’re always learning more about each plant’s individual quirks, and sussing out new green trends across Australia and the world. And one of the best ways we keep track is with a good old-fashioned book.

This super practical book from plant-cultivator and stylist Jason Chongue is one of the best! We’ve read it cover to cover cos when a guy with 200 thriving indoor plants in his home writes a book about how to care for indoor plants, you read it!
