Book Review and Giveaway: Succulents Simplified

June 28, 2013
Debra Lee Baldwin, as I like to call her the succulent queen, has a new book that just arrived on shelves.  In my opinion, Succulents Simplified is a must have for any of you out there like me that are just addicted to succulents. It is also a perfect place to start in your quest to add succulents to your garden. It does not matter whether you are just beginning or a veteran.  This book has something for everyone. Debra’s book shows you how to keep succulents no matter the climate outside. In addition to fabulous photography, she has included care, troubleshooting, diseases and crafting.  She even discusses propagation as well.

In the book, she shares her top 100 succulents. She also shares a plethora of amazing crafts. My favorite craft in the book is how to create a succulent boutonniere. I also gained much more insight into why some of my succulents die off and fail after months of thriving. I think I will definitely be branching off this year and try adding a few new varieties to my ever growing addiction collection.

Just leave a comment with your email address on this blog post to enter to win a copy of Succulents Simplified.  One winner will be selected at random to receive their very own copy.  The book ships to a US address only. One entry per person please.  Giveaway ends on July 3, 2103 at 12 noon.

Good Luck!

  2. My mother in law grows beautiful succulents. I have never grown them myself, but am thinking about devoting a couple pots/planters just for them. 🙂

  3. Would love a copy of this new publication. My daughter is getting married in October. We are using succulents to decorate the cake, as favors and in all the bouquets, boutonnieres and arrangements.

  4. What a wonderful book to feature. I have been casting an envious eye on the tiny succulents for sale locally. I have not made a commitment to then (yet) due to inexperience and lack of knowledge. Now I know the right book to read!
