1190 pages and counting

I just recently came into some new pages...(mostly appendix pages..ex: 160A)
So now my collection goes up to page 846 with an additional 344 appendix pages all throughout the categories. However, I think I still may be missing around a dozen pages.
I will be updating the index pdf files on the side bar of this blog accordingly when I get a few spare minutes to do so.

Here is what 1190 pages looks like.

Welcome to my little GREEN Blog

Hello, I am a big time plant lover and this is my all time favorite "book" on plants.

I have set this blog up to share information about the wonderful 800+ page series binder set known as Success with House Plants from The American Horticultural Society . Published by International Masters Publishers Inc.

***Not to be confused with a book of the same name published by Reader's Digest***

Please note that I am not an expert by any means but just someone who is trying to make a space to discuss, share knowledge and information and to help others complete their own binder collections from this outstanding series.

The information here is what I know personally from my own binder set and from the very little I have gleaned from the Internet.

Apparently the set was published 1985 to 1993. It was sold on a monthly subscription basis. Since few people completed their subscription there are many uncompleted sets floating around out there. I have read that the publisher never did a second edition and has no more in stock.

There is conflicting information on how many pages actually make up a complete set.
From the Internet I found this information: "The complete set had 19 groups, 846 pages (cards) of plants, plus additional pages that included a customer's guide, Fascinating Facts for Plant Lovers, plus a Practical Tips Index and a Plant Care Index."
I have also read that there are over 1000 inserts in a complete set.

All I can tell you for sure is what I know from my personal set which may not be complete if the above statement is true.

My set contains 817 pages. This is including the dividers, additional inserts and several appendix pages. The pages are numbered from 1 to 764.

In the process of trying to complete my collection I have many extra pages. They will be available to you to help you complete your collection.
Also, I am in the process of indexing what I have and I hope to share that as well.

If you would like to share additional information on this series please leave a comment on this post.

Please check back often for updates and downloads.
