Every once in a while I feel the urge to read a "garden story". I really enjoyed Kassinger's other book about plants - she has a lively style and her research and interviews are interesting to read - going into details I didn't know I wanted until I read them. The real charm of this story though, is when she talks about her conservatory. I don't know what would be considered to be a spoiler for this kind of book, but I'll say at one point I was so charmed by a new addition to her conservatory I actually clapped in real life with excitement.
I feel like I learned a few things and found fuel to help me follow through on my own garden.

I enjoyed this book as it ranged far and wide geographically, historically, and personally for the author. Her trial and error experiences were informative and a historical context of green house evolution was extensive. Her passion to research and visit so many plant sources was impressive and put the entire industry in a new light for me. This may not be to everyone's taste, but if your passions cross at all with hers, there is much to be learned and enjoyed!

I had been reading one mystery novel after the other and needed a break from them. I picked this one because the author wanted to set up her own exotic garden and that sounded interesting. I quickly found that the book covered much more than gardening and was full of many anecdotes and stories that were very interesting and enjoyable to read. I could also share the author's cancer experiences.

This is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. It presents solid research in a chatty, informal tone that is inviting and friendly. An account of the author's creation of a greenhouse room in her home--despite her lifelong history of indifference to plants and gardening--is interwoven with a history of the evolution of conservatories. Sound dull? Not at all! It's fascinating. Through history, people have risked great hardship, limb, and life itself to collect plants (initially for their medicinal properties) in hostile environments far from home. Conservatories have come a very long way from windowless buildings heated with smoky fires to magical places that create thriving tropical landscapes in the dead of frigid winter weather. Equally interesting is the author's account of commercial greenhouses that grow plants on a massive scale and can generate a huge crop from a single cloned leaf cell. This is a delightful, highly informative book that serves up lots of adventure in far flung places. You don't even have to be a plant lover to love this book. I recommend it highly.

This is a lively look at how a woman who typically killed plants became an extraordinary indoor gardener of tropical plants by building a conservatory in her home. Along the way, we share in her hunt for exotic plants (and in the history of the early horticulturists and adventurers who did the same, bringing them home in ships); her experience in designing the conservatory, which became a focal part of the author's life shared with friends and family; and especially the very reason she began to love, learn about, and care for plants.

This is a good book to read before you start your home conservatory. She jumped right in, and there were successes and some failures. Kassinger gives specifics of where to get your plants, what worked and what didn't. It's a quick read, and it's fun even for those of us who are not and never will be gardeners, but it's a must for those getting ready to embark on a similar journey.

Very enjoyable book not only for those passionate about plants. Ms. Kassinger has an engaging writing style that will draw anyone in. In this book she alternates between her personal story and the history of greenhouses as they relate to that personal story. One learns quite a bit about horticultural history through this work.
It is a delightful book on indoor gardening!
Adventurous personal memoir and a pleasant dose of historical knowledge on indoor gardening.
Useful information on nurseries in the USA.
Last but not least most eloquently written book which is hard to let it stand for days before picked up again. A book that one does not want it to finish. I enjoyed reading it so much that I am giving it to gardening enthusiast friends as a present.
