Just released, I got my copy hot off the presses in return for my contribution to it.

Softcover, and chock full of pictures of projects for your garden, this delightful book is a fun read and one you’ll revisit lots…, and I’m not just saying that because I was asked for my collaboration.

Stephanie has so much imagination, much like my own. 

It’s refreshing to be getting ideas from someone else and then seeing how they carry them out – in a picture tutorial, in a real book.

So what did I contribute? 

Have a look at pages 94-95.  Here’s an excerpt;

An Essay on the Best Succulents for Crafts

by Jacki Cammidge, Certified Horticulturist

Here are some plants that I’ve found do exceptionally well in containers of all kinds;

The hardy succulents won’t do well indoors for the winter, so they also require special care in the fall, preferring to spend the coldest season dormant under the snow.

Hardy Succulents;

Jovibarba species; are all very similar and tend to make a colony or carpet of tiny rosettes thickly covering the surface of the soil.

Sedum pachyclados – low-growing pale green notched rosettes

Sedum oreganum – lime green tinged bronze puffy leaves on red stems

Sedum glaucophyllum – greeny blue low-growing rosettes

Sedum spathyphyllum ‘Capo Blanco’ – white, highly pruinosed foliage makes a mound

Sempervivum arachnoideum Hookeri – pale green tinged with red in cooler temperatures

Sempervivum ‘Maria Laach’ – medium sized black tipped rosettes
