View larger image of 'Succulents in cultivation - breeding new cultivars'Rowley, Gordon -  Succulents in cultivation - breeding new cultivars
Gordon’s books have always covered interesting and important subjects which have been overlooked previously, and this one continues the tradition. Some cacti and succulents have been hybridised or attractive forms selected for a long time, and he explains how this has come about. A large part of the book surveys the results achieved, and if you would like to try yourself to produce new and striking plants he explains the various way to try it – you don’t have to be a large multinational conglomerate for some of the methods which amateurs have successfully used in the past! Illustrated with many colour photos. 11 x 9 ¼ 248 pages 2017
