SOME OF THE most polluted places on earth are where we spend 90% of our time: inside our homes. Science is continually uncovering more effective ways of improving the quality of our environment, and plants - specifically indoor trees and shrubs - are at the top of this list.

Growing trees and shrubs indoors might seem like a monumental challenge, but it's no different than growing any plants indoors. Written by master gardener DJ Herda, Growing Trees and Shrubs Indoors is a definitive guide to what makes these plants special, offering all the tips and tricks you need to help them survive and flourish in an indoor environment. It covers how they:


  • Rid your environment of airborne pollutants

  • Beautify your home

  • Help you to live a longer, healthier, happier life.

Growing Trees and Shrubs Indoors is for those with a keen interest in gardening, health, and science, offering an entirely new way of promoting human wellness - through beautiful, enjoyable surroundings.


Clearly written and beautifully illustrated. It's a real eye-opener!
- Phillip Adcock, commercial psychologist and author, Master Your Brain

Distills a lifetime of plant experience into easy-to-follow instruction, giving an amateur like me the confidence to green my home for health.
- Paula Baker-LaPorte, FAIA, BBNC, co-author, Prescriptions for a Healthy House
