DR CATHERINE HORWOOD – IS IT ALL OVER FOR THE FIDDLE LEAF FIG? FADS AND FASHIONS IN HOUSEPLANTS
Dr Catherine Horwood, author of Potted History: How Houseplants took over our Homes, looks at how the popularity of houseplants has been influenced by changing trends in domestic interiors over the centuries and what the future holds for today’s favourite indoor plants.
Catherine Horwood is a social historian and author of Beth Chatto: A Life with Plants (Pimpernel Press), which won the European Garden Book of the Year 2019. Her other books include the recently revised Potted History: How Houseplants took over our Homes (Pimpernel Press), Rose (Reaktion), a cultural history of the world’s favourite flower and Gardening Women: Their Stories from 1600 to the Present (Virago).
