Staff Reviews


Within minutes of opening Succulents, I was already writing down names of plants I want to pick up for my garden. (Luckily for us, author Robin Stockwell has his own nursery in Castroville, so I know where to stock up!) Stockwell believes that “if you present succulents well, you will show off their unique beauty to the fullest,” so it’s no wonder that his book is an ideal mix of information and inspiration. The first part of Succulents is devoted to garden design, and it’s packed with plant pairings for all sizes of spaces, from large ranches to small crevices. Chapters on projects (such as tabletop displays), favorite plants, and getting started follow. If you’re not already a fan of these beautiful, easy-care plants, you will be after reading Succulents.
