Review: \”The floral arrangements presented in the alluring guide to growing succulents in small containers are both idiosyncratic and striking…The sophisticated designs draw on a variety of textures-such as the long, dangly string of pearl plant; leafy little missy; and spikes of the silver pet plant, particularly for the hanging plants. These distinctive plantings are not for novices, but they will beckon to those who find ikebana and bonsai appealing, and to the cactus-loving crowd.\” -Publishers Weekly \”I’m delighted with both the beautifully photographed designs and instructions!
