I've anticipated the arrival of this book for a couple of months now and when it finally arrived, I was nearly giddy with glee. Having recently developed an appetite for succulents, this really hit the spot. Baldwin shares her vast knowledge of succulents of all types with the rest of us in a very organized and easy-to-understand way.
This is a how-to manual of the best kind, with chapters on the various types of succulents and how to care for them. Site-specific details help readers choose those plants that will bring them the most success in their particular climate or indoor location. More than 300 color photographs give ideas for container plantings. I particularly like the section showing vertical displays.
