The latest addition to the Starting Out With series of gardening books.

Succulents are a fascinating and huge range of diverse plants in many different shapes and sizes. Starting Out With Succulents showcases a wide variety of succulents, suitable for many regions and climates across Australia, so gardeners will find one to thrive in any garden. Many easily grown species and cultivars are listed, as well as some Australian natives, and an introduction to miniature mesembs. Most species are covered in the book, along with many hybrids and cultivars, and are illustrated in colour photographs for easy identification. Succulents are promoted for their tolerance of dryness and drought resistance, and will certainly provide an interesting feature to any garden or pot.
