No green thumb? No problem!

Succulents are the ultimate low-care plants, able to withstand erratic rainfall, poor soil, and outright neglect—they almost never need pruning, watering, feeding, or fussing over. That, along with their astounding range of colors and forms, makes them ideal for those who want an attractive yet low-maintenance container planting or landscape view. In Planting Designs for Cactus & Succulents, a book made for the gardener and non-gardener alike, you’ll find information and design inspiration for adding these plants to your interior and exterior spaces. Authors Sharon Asakawa and John Bagnasco, with well over half a century of gardening experience between them, offer expert tips for selection, planting, and care, then show you how to beautifully incorporate cacti and succulents into your particular environment. More than twenty step-by-step how-to projects are paired with gorgeous photographic demonstrations, teaching you how to make your own terrariums, dish gardens, living “paintings,” xerispheres, bouquets and centerpieces, hair ornaments, natural walkways, birdhouse roofs, picture frames, seasonal arrangements, and more. Just when you’d given up, Planting Designs for Cactus & Succulents comes to the rescue as your comprehensive guide to the plants that can survive in some of the least nurturing environments on Earth—even if that happens to include your house.
