Summary
In 'Paradise Under Glass', Ruth Kassinger - a self-described 'wanton killer of plants' - recounted with grace, humour, and poignancy her moving journey from brown thumb to green, sharing the lessons she learned building a home conservatory in the wake of a devastating personal crisis. In 'A Garden of Marvels', she enhances and extends her story. While Kassinger successfully created her dream conservatory and rectified her initial gardening mistakes - the over-watering and under-fertilizing that often kill plants - she realized she had no idea what to do to help them thrive. Until she completely understood how plants actually worked, she couldn't know exactly what they needed. In her friendly and reassuring voice Kassinger introduces the basic botany of plants - flowers, roots, stems, and leaves - and explains how they function together
