Vintage Plant Books
For any plant lover on your holiday list, consider a one-of-a-kind gift of a vintage book. I adore my own library of quirky, out-of-print houseplant and gardening books which I consult for advice from time to time, my favorite being a circa-1940s hardcover copy of The African Violet that arrived on my doorstep with a lovely surprise. I found tucked inside the pages a time capsule: notes and tips from a previous owner, typed on onion skin. Here are a few volumes I’d be tempted to add to my own collection:
- Gift Guide 2018: 15 Stocking Stuffers for Under $15(ish) on Remodelista
- Botanical Art: Portraits of Houseplants from Dutch Painter Maaike Koster
- An Insider’s Guide to Getting First Dibs on the Best Ikea Houseplants
