Rosemary McCreary grew up in an Illinois family of market gardeners. Today she lives north of San Francisco, where in the company of deer and other wildlife she tries to limit her ever-expanding garden to two acres. She shares her knowledge of botany and horticulture by teaching throughout northern California and writing a weekly garden column in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. She is the author of Tabletop Gardens.

Tabletop Gardens is a uniquely imaginative approach to indoor gardening. The 40 garden designs offer many ideas for choosing a personal style and getting started — plants under glass, in bowls and trays, and even in water environments. Each project includes complete advice on the materials needed and step-by-step information on how to create the garden. Popular, easy-to-grow herbs, grasses, bulbs, water plants, vines, and miniature trees are naturals for tabletop gardening, and many “hot plants” like bamboo and orchids are featured.
