This one has LOTS of gorgeous pictures, which is what *I'm* looking for, and lots of tips and gardening info, which might be what *you* are looking for...
Add this to your garden library -- I don't think you'll be disappointed!
Technical names of succulents would be written within paragraphs, and I'd have no idea what she was talking about. I'd have to alt-tab out and Google it to figure out what that plant actually looked like. There was some decent looking pictures of different gardens (with some of the succulents named), but nothing real impressive (the cover picture was probably the best design photo in the entire book in my opinion).
I did actually like the section on non-succulents that go well together with succulents. It gave me a few ideas to try out.
Overall I didn't get out of it what I was looking for, and for that I do regret buying this. Not worth the price for the information provided. I was hoping for something a little more structured, and less rambling.
