Hanging plants bring a special grace and charm to the garden, the country estate, the modest city back yard or... more » the apartment window, and Dr. Baumgardt describes just how to grown them everywhere.
Indoors, he suggests beginning with small, easy house plants and graduating to the more exotic and demanding types. The key to growing healthy plants indoors is matching the plant to the environment, and he tells just where trailing plant can be grown to advantage in the average home.
