Featuring over 40 cool, high-maintenance-looking plants, The Unkillables will ensure your put your plant-murdering days firmly in the past, and will transform your home into the gorgeous green space you always dreamed of.

Are you a plant killer? There's nothing more heart-breaking than bringing your new plant baby home, only to have it die a slow death in front of your very eyes. Was it too much water? Not enough sunlight? A drafty corner? The reasons for planticide can seem endless!

In The Unkillables, Jo Lambell shares her houseplant knowledge so that even the biggest plant serial killers can have an abundant indoor garden. Jo will take the fear out of the unknown and equip those with no green fingers at all with the skills they need to keep their plants alive and thriving. Plants can be a little intimidating – with their fancy Latin names, complex terminology and 'just look at me and I'll perish' reputation – so choosing hardy, tolerant plants is the best place to start. Jo walks you through the basics of care – light, water, location – as well as sharing information on repotting, propagating, cleaning, First Aid and more.


Jo Lambell:
Jo Lambell's love of houseplants began in 2001 when she moved into her first home. After carrying a 6ft Monstera over her shoulder on the bus back from a well-known Swedish home furnishings retailer, she knew there must be a better way of getting plants delivered... which is when she had the idea to start Beards & Daisies. Beards & Daisies is an online plant delivery company, which stocks the biggest selection of houseplants in the UK. Jo believes that plants are the perfect way to update your home or office and is fanatical about plants.
