    • What an amazingly informative book on succulents The knowledge this book offers is fantastic It is amazing the different things that she shows you can do with them I am an avid gardener and love my cacti and succulents, but I never thought of some of the things she did with them I am excited to try some of the different projects out and see how they come out.Her photographs in the book are amazing too She really captures the beauty of these plants I loved her description of beautifully stressed [...]


    • Succulents are my new obsession It started innocently enough after I dropped into a hipster thrift shop and found cute little succulents in tiny little pots for a couple of bucks each So I got some, and then, any time I had an afternoon off, I d drop in to see what was new Now I m hooked I used to think I didn t like succulents, but I d never realized the sheer variety, strangeness, beauty, and geometric artistry of some of these plants I picked up this book and a couple from the library on a w [...]


    • Lays a good foundation for those of us who didn t officially study horticulture and or design theory Gives a good outline of succulents and succulent friendly plants to keep in mind and provides several design tutorials that help diminish the mystery of some projects Liked the advice on propagation.


    • I m a big fan of succulents, and I mainly have succulents in my home the only non succulent I own is a spider plant I ve been a fan of succulent since my first Christmas cactus when I got married for how easy they are to care for and for how simply beautiful they are when they flower, and I ve never looked back I tend to pamper my plants for a while and then life gets busy I neglect them for a while, and succulents do great with these conditions Just give em water once in a while lots of sun the [...]


    • This is a useful book if you live in hardiness zones 8 11 and can grow succulents and cacti outside Since this is a relatively small geographic population, I was hoping for information on container gardening, care, and indoor propogation Her 100 Easy Care Varieties included some information on the plants and their origin, but very little on identification, propogation and care even on things as basic as soil and watering I did pickup some tips and got a few ideas for my own containers I will ke [...]


    • My biggest complaint about gardening books, is that they are invariably written by people from the Southwest or East by people with no idea of the complications that Northwest gardeners have to deal with Torrential rains one year followed by drought in the next This was a great overview of what kinds of succulents are available But after reading specifics about each plant I despair at finding ones that will be suitable in my environment.


    • A good book to read as well as keep for reference Lots of full color photos, descriptions of plants, motivating examples of landscaping and great ideas for combining various types to plant in pots A plus is the section on crafting with succulents step by step photos and descriptions of fun ideas to make I borrowed this book from the library but it would make a great gift to have as a reference.


    • Simplified is right Lots of information but not too much that it becomes overwhelming I wanted to know the names of the most common succulents and I was able to get that information here The author shows that not all succulents can be treated the same way This is one of those books that will be checked out often from the library.


    • Probably most useful if you live in California and already know a lot about gardening and succulents Could have used illustrationsis may be a problem with Kindle format than anything else.



    • Succulents are described as the plants that drink responsibly Requiring very little water in order to thrive, they are the perfect kind of plants for areas where water is a scarce commodity and must be conserved There are likely to be many such areas in the future It is good to know that even in these circumstances, there are plants that we can grow successfully.Debra Lee Baldwin has written a book that is a useful introduction to these trendy, low maintenance plants In Succulents Simplified, s [...]


    • Not a bad book per se, but somehow I felt it was a little shallow towards plants The author seemed to only place value on the plants aesthetic appeal rather than valuing them just for being living things It seemed like a very humanocentric attitude to plants and gardening, focusing a lot on how the plants can please us with their looks and what we can do with them to be craftsy, rather than thinking about how we can have a reciprocal relationship with our plants where they please us and we pleas [...]


    • Debra Lee Baldwin manages to be informative, entertaining and funny describing the plants she holds such passion for I picked this book up expecting it to be dry and was surprised to find myself drawn in and excited to read about these unique plants What really makes this book stand out is how simply she describes the growth and care for succulents Before reading this I was intimidated to try gardening, but now I am growing some mosaic aloe of my own While I do have Debra Lee Baldwin s other bo [...]


    • I really enjoyed the book even though it is technically for growing succulents outside I still learned a lot about the succulents in general that will hopefully help me not kill these new plants I have gotten Although i am still not entirely sure which ones I bought Lol succulents are so new to me and so different from regular houseplants I really liked the section at the end that went in to detail about 100 different succulents and how each of them grows, behaves and what they look like If yo [...]


    • amazing I have never read a thorough book on plants in my life and I own several This is my first book on succulents and just skimming through I learned a lot I live in so cal in the high desert and on a Arizona inspired desert scape style home and our succulents are pretty damn lame compared to the ones in this book Obviously we are not caring for them properly but that s about to change Thank you Debra Baldwin You are amazing


    • I was hoping for a little bit guidance on the necessary climate conditions for growing succulents outside However, this is an attractive book with a lot of great information on individual varieties, as well as excellent suggestions for groupings and projects Not QUITE what I was looking for, but clearly an excellent text nonetheless.


    • While I suppose the title, bearing simplified should have told me, I did find the book rather simple I d hoped for in depth knowledge and tips from one of the experts on succulents Still, informative, however light it may at times be And interesting succulent design projects inside the book, most of which I intend to try at some point


    • Good basic and inspiring book It was a bit rough for me as it was written In a way for someone who has familiarity with the names of the plants or someone who is willing to constantly refer to the index at the end of the book I wish there were pictures and the names of plants pointed clearly with lines or arrows.


    • Awesome, lushly illustrated primer on varieties of succulents and how to best use their colors and shapes in the garden and in crafts It was so beautiful it was a wonderful experience just to read through it and enjoy the pictures.


    • Beautiful labeled pictures of many kinds of succulents Rich with information Makes me wish I lived where many if these beauties thrive Some will thrive in Missouri, but many need a place to winter.


    • Great Love it Lots of beautiful photos and ideas on how to use succulents when gardening I am amazed to see how many succulents there are and all of the colors that succulents produce Working with succulents must not only be creative, but fun too Well done


    • Novice guide is chockful of colorful photos showing design ideas using succulents Information about anything you want to know about caring, growing or crafty ideas The illustrations draw you right into this book.


    • Debra Lee Baldwin writes a nice book on succulents divided into a number of sections covering multiple areas from growing, designing and crafting with succulents She does an admirable job covering the topics.


    • This is a fabulous compendium of information on succulents everything from the growth and care info to designing an outdoor garden, to indoor planters It even tells you how to make your own vertical succulent garden Very thoroughly and well done


    • The photography is gorgeous and the information outstanding The book also presented fresh, new design projects.




    • Wonderful photos of bizarre and amazing succulents After reading this book, I added many new varieties to my wants list.


    • The section titles alone made this book an excellent choice The photography was delightful and the information was practical, useful, and well organized.
