    Exactly the right mix of garden planning, garden inspiration, plant identification, propagation and care.Since I live in Minnesota, the section on cold climate succulent gardens was a necessity and is often overlooked or only briefly mentioned in many succulent books Baldwin also includes images from succulent gardens around the country which provided me with much needed inspiration for planting in my hardiness zone As an added bonus I now have a list of gardens around the country I d like t Exactly the right mix of garden planning, garden inspiration, plant identification, propagation and care.Since I live in Minnesota, the section on cold climate succulent gardens was a necessity and is often overlooked or only briefly mentioned in many succulent books Baldwin also includes images from succulent gardens around the country which provided me with much needed inspiration for planting in my hardiness zone As an added bonus I now have a list of gardens around the country I d like to visit Top Fifty Waterwise Companions for Succulents was another section I found pertinent to my garden needs.Baldwin also writes about Firewise Gardens I found that section particularly interesting and educational despite not living in an area prone to wildfires Succulent plantings act as firebreaks they don t burn or transmit fire and in some instances have protected homes from being destroyed by fires Baldwin quotes Gary Lyons, a curator of the desert collection in Huntington Botanical Gardens, I wondered why there was no code requirement that requires developers and residents to use succulents in high fire areas Sounds like a brilliant idea to me

    What I liked about this book is that there is a description or an encyclopedia of every plant I found this to be exactly what I was looking for The hardest part is to identify plants that I do not know, and this book answers those questions for me It also has ideas about planting in pots and around your garden, and even if you are doing a pound what vegetation or plants that would be good The ones that are good for large amount of water and the ones that don t need it so much I also liked h What I liked about this book is that there is a description or an encyclopedia of every plant I found this to be exactly what I was looking for The hardest part is to identify plants that I do not know, and this book answers those questions for me It also has ideas about planting in pots and around your garden, and even if you are doing a pound what vegetation or plants that would be good The ones that are good for large amount of water and the ones that don t need it so much I also liked how she termed some of the plants cacti before describing them as succulents Growing up in the desert I always looked at them as cactus even though some could hold water Now everyone wants to lump them all together, so I was happy about the difference The photos are very good quality, as are all of the descriptions of the designs and helpful suggestions in landscape Overall this is an excellent book for any gardener or beginner I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars Follow us at www.1rad readerreviews.com

    Designing with Succulents by Debra Lee Baldwin is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early July.A really good resource for selecting and combining succulents to create either a large or small thematic motif, but there s and overwhelming color palette of warm rose, puce, and teal often at the top and bottom of a page in an ombr stripe And, the further I went into the book, theI couldn t un see it.
