The author's knowledge of cacti, its cultivation, and use is commedable. Worth every single penny paid!
The photos of the plants are very well shot and excellent in quality. Just looking at the pictures is a delight as you see the myriad colours, textures and varieties of the plants. It is an exhaustive home gardener’s guide, alright.
Cacti Culture – Prickles Of Pride is a book that is extremely well laid out in detailed sections and in the order, one would need to read it if you are new to growing Cacti. Quite military precision is visible in the sections and subsections. The display of the Cacti whether in a dish, garden, pots, terrace gardens or as terrariums are all explained in details. The FAQ’s cover any leftover questions as well as the myths about keeping thorny plants.
The pages cover the varieties that grow easily with pictures and details making it a ready reference for Cacti lovers. Even if you do not grow or like Cacti just the pictures will make you a fan of this beautiful and marvellous plant. A must have for cacti lovers! 5 Stars!!
I thank fingerprint publishing for the copy of the book.
Another chapter offers ideas on presentation of the plants, to outdoor plantings in the open air, to various containers like terraria and hanging baskets.
The main body of the book covers genera and species of cacti that are interesting to grow. A great feature is to explain the origin of the Latin names, with common names and country of origin. There are tips for cultivation, and very nice photos to show the plant and flowers in detail.
The book is highly recommended.
Well done Major General Sahab.
