Fran Bailey & Zia Allaway
Cacti and succulents are famously undemanding and able to withstand drought, but with care, they will do more than survive, they will thrive. This handbook – The Practical Cactus and Succulent Book – will show you how.
Cacti and succulents have always attracted attention due to their fascinating and often bizarre beauty. Recently they have undergone a renaissance, becoming almost iconic symbols of 21st-century living. Spread across social media, we see them transforming traditional conservatories, contemporary flats or urban offices.
Drawing on a wealth of RHS expertise, this beautifully photographed book provides a step-by-step guide to how to care for some 200 cacti and succulents, covering everything from purchase to step-by-step advice for propagation. Included are intriguing suggestions for new methods of display, such as a succulent globe or floating terrarium garden.
The RHS, founded in 1804, is the UK’s leading gardening charity dedicated to advancing horticulture and promoting good gardening.
