If acquiring a green thumb is on your to-do list, this book is the place to start

Take note.

Plant Society is the ultimate beginner’s guide to not killing your plants.

Penned by plant cultivator and stylist Jason Chongue, it covers off everything you need to know to hone your green thumb and turn your home into an urban oasis.

The book gently guides you through the basics such as choosing the right plants for your space, repotting, propagation and pest control.

With profiles of 25 ideal indoor plants – ranked from easiest to maintain to the most labour-intensive and temperamental (beware the fiddle-leaf fig) – it’s the perfect manual if you’re not sure where to start.

You’ll also find styling advice and suggestions on what pots and planters to pair with what plant.

If you’re a novice who’s never kept a plant alive, this book will show you that with a few handy hints, it’s actually not that difficult.
