Lovely book for inspiration though, such as a windowsill cactus garden and plants to group!

I pre-ordered Hilton Carter's, Wild at Home book the first day it became available of Amazon. For several years I've been following Hilton's Instagram feed, it's my very favorite feed on Instagram. I don't remember anymore how I first came across his work with plants, perhaps he mentioned Terrain or Terrain mention him. What I do know is Terrain in Glen Mills is one of my favorite places, it's a garden store and cafe, filled with plants that are so well curated and styled and a delight to all your senses. Soft music plays, candles are burning, there's usually a fire pit burning outside, it's a fabulous example of 'Scandinavian hygge.' This same magical atmosphere is what Hilton has created and shared in his new book. And you can create it too in your home.
I received my copy of Wild at Home, and started reading it that day and the next day. It's filled with so many helpful tips on plant care and even a section on making a plant hammock or a lamp terrarium! It's an easy read and a great reference book for plant care. The book is full in inspirational photographs from Hilton's home and also from some of his friends homes he has styled with plants.
I have the feeling that this might just be the first of many books the Hilton will create. I highly recommend this book (it's a 10!) to anyone who wants to care for their green friends in the best possible way. I look forward to many other books from Hilton and maybe even a coffee table book!
