The Handbook of Cacti and Succulents is a comprehensive guide to all the families and most interesting genera of these fascinating plants and to their care and cultivation in the home, the greenhouse and outdoors. The plants themselves are split into two sections for easy reference, reflecting the interest of collectors, an A-Z of cacti and an A-Z of other succulents.
Each species in the book is described with respect to its family, genus, growth, habit, place of origin and distinguishing features. More than 300 full colour pictures make The Handbook of Cacti and Succulents an invaluable reference guide for the succulent plant enthusiast. The up to date family and genus directories provide further authoritative sources of information for the Serious collector.
