One of the great wonders of nature is the ability of plants

to adapt and survive in the harshest of environments.

Growing mostly in desert areas, succulents provide many

fascinating examples of this. Among this plant group

there is an astonishing variety of size, shape and hue

to be found, ranging from Testudinaria elephantipes,

with its swollen hemispherical wooden base, to stone

plants such as Lithops, that are little more than a pair

of swollen leaves. This book features 50 of the best

varieties, and explains how to cultivate and care for

them. Hardy and stoical, but also immensely varied,

every grower will find a succulent to suit their tastes.

Features a directory of over 50 varieties of succulents,

including Agave, Aloe, Cotyledon, Euphorbia, Haworthia,

Kalanchoe, Lithops, Sedum and Testudinaria

Step-by-step photographic guidance on planting,

repotting, propagation by seeds and cuttings, everyday

maintenance, and common pests and diseases

For each variety, full botanical information is provided

on growth, spread, size and flowering, as well as

suggestions for other recommended species to try
