If you call the countryside home but have no time to step outside . . .

In The New Terrarium, Tovah Martin, one of Americas favorite gardeners, introduces you to the whimsical yet practical world of gardens under glassa no-fuss way to bring snippets of nature indoors. Wherever you are, in whatever little time you have, terrariums are the perfect tool for nature lovers and gardeners everywhere.
With gorgeous photography, The New Terrarium reveals how this classic garden tool has been reimagined in a modern way. When encased in glass, plants thrive with almost no help from outside their little enclosed world, so you can host a plant almost anywherein your apartment where the air is dry or in your cubicle where theres little natural light. Tucked inside something crystal and contained, the bounty of the forest or treasures from the beach or the meadow can merge seamlessly into your home or office environment. Its amazing how some frothy fern fronds or colorful blossoms can transform a room by giving it a burst of vibrant green life.
With clear, simple step-by-step instructions and photographs to inspire and guide you along the way, Martin shares her years of experience growing and tending terrariums and shows how terrariums can enrich your life, including:
different venues for cultivating your terrarium
plants that flourish in these gardens under glass
ideas and designs for creating your first terrarium
how to care for and maintain the environment youve made
Martin has designed a unique range of imaginative terrarium projects, including ones that are suitable for children, enliven the seasons, incorporate plant propagation, and show off a nature collection. Whether you are a gardener or city-dwelling nature lover,The New Terrarium is the perfect way to spark your creativity, while helping you to bring your favorite plants into your home and giving them a place to thrive.
When nature is out of arms reach and you crave a little greenery, The New Terrarium can show you how to bring all the benefits of the outdoors close to you.
