Growing Cacti and Other Succulents in The Conservatory and Indoors

Author: Shirley-Anne Bell

Cacti and other succulents are among the strangest and most outrageously colorful plants on the planet, and this book demonstrates how easy it is to create glorious displays in your home and in the workplace. Too often hidden away in dark corners, these remarkable growths deserve to be given a prominent place not only in your conservatory but in any warm and well-lit room. They will reward you by making few demands on your time - thriving on benign neglect!

The first part of the book covers organizing a display, with ideas for using pots and other containers as well as planting in permanent beds; choosing plants for particular settings, from collections of tiny miniatures to large stand-alone architectural plants; maintenance and propagation.

The second part is a plant selector, with easy-to-follow lists of cacti and other succulents for various purposes, from climbing, trailing and flowering species, through large and low-growing plants to assorted curiosities. The best species to use are described in each chapter, and pictures both in inspirational settings and close-ups which clearly reveal their characteristics.
