I have all of the succulent books by this author. They have useful information , excellent design ideas and fabulous photos . I definitely recommend all of them. So check out this author if you love succulents.
I'm a big fan of succulents, and I mainly have succulents in my home - the only non-succulent I own is a spider plant. I've been a fan of succulent since my first Christmas cactus when I got married for how easy they are to care for - and for how simply beautiful they are when they flower, and I've never looked back. I tend to pamper my plants for a while and then life gets busy & I neglect them for a while, and succulents do great with these conditions. Just give 'em water once in a while & lots of sun & they are happy. As with other books of this type, the book is dominated by the beautiful photography of the plants. The book talks about succulent care, but also what you can do with your plants - from edibles, to crafting, to flowering. Though the focus is on outdoor plants - something not realistic for most varieties here in MA - there's a lot of information for the indoor container gardener, too. I received a review copy for free from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
