Die Welt verstehen, ohne einen Fuß vor die Tür zu setzen Was bleibt nach der „Geschichte von fast allem“ eigentlich noch zu schreiben? Die Geschichte von fast allem anderen, natürlich. Bill Bryson hat sich daher in seinen vier Wänden umgesehen und sich gefragt: Warum leben wir eigentlich, wie wir leben? Warum nutzen wir ausgerechnet Salz und Pfeffer, und weshalb hat unsere Gabel vier Zinken? Aber es bleibt nicht bei Geschichten von Bett, Sofa und Küchenherd. Die Geschichte des Heims ist auch immer eine der großen Entdeckungen und Abenteuer. Ohne die Weltausstellung in London hätte man vermutlich das Wasserklosett nicht so schnell zu schätzen gelernt. Und ohne die großen Entdecker müssten wir wohl ohne Kaffee, Tee oder Kakao auskommen. Bill Bryson zeigt uns unser Heim, wie wir es noch nie gesehen haben. Und wir verstehen ein wenig mehr, warum es so ist, wie es ist.

A windowsill is among the best possible places to put a plant âe" it provides ample sunlight, brightens the look of your home from the outside, and adds what amounts to a filter to the air coming in and out of your home. In winter, they can add a touch of color to an otherwise drab view, and in summer they thrive. But, not every plant grows well in these conditions âe" with as many as 40 percent of most houseplants according to Garden Guides not needing nearly that much sunlight. The selection of the right houseplants for your windowsill is a necessary step to ensuring they survive and thrive. This book will guide you through the steps needed to select the perfect plants for your windowsill and cultivate them to both fit in with your space and to survive the conditions, whether inside or outside. You will learn everything you need to know to effectively plant windowsill plants and improve how your home and your windows look to the world outside. You will learn, through a series of detailed charts, which plants are best suited to the cramped space of a windowsill and which ones will only give you problems.

The Trouble with Plants: Tales of Trivia and Tribulation from an English Garden

The Trouble with Plants is unique. Out has gone the traditional recipe for a garden plant guide, plant directory or plant encyclopaedia of compiling a plant's cultural details into a dry and dusty list, decorating with a stock colour photograph, and repeating for 10,000 plants. Instead here's a book that pioneers a radical new recipe for each of maybe 200 popular plants from 100 or so genera. To a simple base of cultural details add the author's personal experience of growing them. Stir in a generous measure of trivia, either directly or peripherally connected to the name, folklore, history and usage of the genus. Spice with a dash of the author's own wry perspective, and serve in digestible portions. The result is destined to please the palate of most gardeners, and perhaps even some non-gardeners too.
