Growing Trees and Shrubs Indoors

Breathe New Life into Your Home with Large Plants

by DJ Herda



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 D.J. Herda, Growing Trees and Shrubs Indoors is a definitive guide on what makes these plants special and 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.

An explosive introduction into the wellness scene, 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 – by creating beautiful, enjoyable surroundings.
