Along with plenty of explanation through the text and tip areas, there are numerous colorful pictures to further illustrate the important points.After taking readers through design, the basics involved with a terrarium, and choosing a vessel to put the stuff into, it is on to “Getting Started” in Chapter Four. This is when she shows you how to put it all together through pictures and detailed instructions. This is an incredibly informative section as she shows you step by step how to construct a terrarium in several very different vessels.While one could be in a hurry to get started, one should pay a lot of attention to the following chapters which cover all sorts of different plants and their needs as well as maintain the terrarium once you get started. As in the rest of the book, variety is key here and showcase by text and photograph.An extensive resource guide as well as glossary and a four page index bring this book to a close.Published by Cool Springs Press, Terrariums: Gardens Under Glass is a visual treasure trove filled with neat ideas.
