Camille Soulayrol, co-editor-in-chief of Marie Claire Idées, an author stylist and visual designer, has collected the best Parisian experts together and written a book, Plantopia. From its subtitles – Cultivate, Create, Soothe, Nourish – you’ll get the idea it’ll be filled plants and ideas for using them, it certainly is.

Growing healthy house plants comes naturally to some but for many, including me, it’s never as easy as it looks. With tips and encouraging images Camille and her friends provide common sense advice on choosing the right type of plant to suit your situation and style, suggestions for propagation, novel ideas to display your plants, and DIY projects. It’s a book that gives everything you need to get more involved with the green gift that nature’s given us.

Leafing through this book I realise there are many more ways to engage with plants besides growing them and I’m going to try a few – I especially like the idea of making your own diffuser, and the suggestions for using pressed leaves for a wall display.

Inspirational images and ideas-a-plenty (none of which cost a fortune) I recommend you put this book on your wish list. If you fancy getting more green in your home, or donning your craft apron you won’t go wrong with this 160-page hardback book which has just been released and is retailing at £19.95. Another quality publication from Flammarion.

Note: Images are by Frédéric Baron-Morin. Thanks to Samantha Evans for sending me a copy of the book to review.

A book for plant-lovers. A rush of green energy. A breath of fresh air.
