Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Apparently, Miles Anderson can't get cacti out of his skin or consciousness. The Complete Illustrated Guide to Growing Cacti & Succulents stands firm as the fifth book that he has written on the topics. This new, abundantly illustrated 264-page resource functions as a training camp for learning the A's to Z's of these attractive, gardener-friendly plants. Everything you need to know about buying, planting, and maintaining these exotic plants; a trade paperback original.
