The Hidden Histories of House Plants explores the world’s most common house plants, and their journeys to our homes.

This book isn’t just a dry exploration of historical cultivation; the narrative explores the plants’ places in social history, art, politics, fashion and culture, showcasing the most fascinating elements of each plant’s story, be it William Morris’ palm obsession that continues to be replicated in the 21st century by the likes of Ikea, or how common indoor ferns first made their way to Europe in glass jars for botanical studies, and why these terrariums are now on display in almost everyone's homes.
