About this book

Succulents evolved to counteract drought and water loss, and now furnish gardeners with an exciting, often bizarre array of forms with which to experiment. As a result, they have become a common sight in modern gardens. They make fascinating and exotic displays, and come in all sizes, shapes, colours and varieties, providing beautiful showpieces. This range, coupled with their ease of cultivation, makes garden succulents amongst the most popular and widely grown of plant groups, appealing to beginners and specialists alike. This concise and informative guide to growing succulents in the garden shows you how to choose the best variety for your soil and situation, and offers advice on care and cultivation, and planting and propogation. It also includes recommended varieties and cultivars for the best results. The "RHS Wisley handbooks" series is written by experts for the Royal Horticultural Society.
