Cacti are a fascinating group of succulent plants, thriving in both the desert and jungle, and often featuring beautiful, colourful flowers. Clive Innes, a widely respected authority on cacti and succulents, has drawn together a wealth of information on the subject. In addition to an extensive directory covering 117 genera, precise information is given on the most suitable conditions for the successful cultivation and propagation of cacti. Many of the species are illustrated in full colour, giving a wonderful demonstration of their variety and richness. "Cacti" is an essential practical-reference book for the enthusiast and amateur grower alike. The founder and first chairman of the British Bromeliad Society, Clive Innes has travelled throughout the world to bring new species and varieties into cultivation, and has founded the Holly Gate Nursery as Ashington, Sussex. As well as being involved with the RHS and the International Organization for Succulent Plant Study, he has written many books on the subject.
