I’m so excited about my book, Idiots Guides: Succulents! This is a really great resource for people just starting out with succulents and might even provide some insight for succulent addicts who’ve been growing succulents for a while.
You can buy the book on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble in the US.
The book is divided into four main sections: care, selecting and arranging succulents, projects, and plant information. The care section covers everything you need to know to get started: watering, soil, sun, potting, propagating, etc.
Selecting and arranging succulents is one of my favorite sections. I had help from some really talented succulent designers, including Katie Christensen, Cindy Davison of The Succulent Perch, Desiree Castro of Redeeming Eden, Mimi Hong of I Dream of Succulents, as well as Michael and Danielle Romero.
I also had help from Adam Kopras of Santa Barbara Succulent Art, Erin Nielson of Floral Design by Erin, and Waterwise Botanicals. There are a lot of great arrangements and a great guide to help you in your next adventure with potting succulents.
Once you’ve created your beautiful succulent arrangements, there’a also a few pages to inspire you in decorating with succulents in your home.
You’ll find a variety of project tutorials in the Idiot’s Guide as well. The projects start off simple and work their way to being a little more complicated, but absolutely doable!
The final section is one of the most helpful, and something I’ve had many of you request. It is a list of 100 easy to care for and easy to find succulents. There is a photo of each succulent and information about what zone it can grow in, how much light it needs and a few other details about the plant.
Then, in the appendix, there is a chart of these 100 succulents arranged by color and then arranged by height to help you in your design choices.
I think you’ll find the Idiot’s Guides: Succulents to be a great resource and reference guide. If you’ve purchased the book already, please leave a review on Amazon or leave a comment here and let me know what you think!
