View larger image of 'Tree Aloes of Africa'van Jaarsveld & Judd -  Tree Aloes of Africa
First in a planned series of books covering all the Aloe family – including Gasteria, Haworthia etc – this covers what in latest classification are now termed Aloidendron, six species of Tree Aloe, plus the closely related Kumara plicatilis - what was previously known as Aloe plicatilis. As with all Ernst van Jaarsveld books, there is much wider information than just the plants themselves. It starts with an explanation about the background to the reclassification and botany, before going in to the history of the plants discovery by early settlers and explorers until the present day. Chapters then cover their distribution and ecology, and cultivation. The species are then covered in detail with an attractive full page colour painting by Eric Judd and colour photos showing the whole plant, flowers, habitat etc. 2015 10 ½ x 8 74 pages

View larger image of 'The Gardener's Guide to Cactus'Calhoun, Scott -  The Gardener's Guide to Cactus
An introductory book covering 100 of the most attractive species with an emphasis on their use in landscaping and large pot cultivation. Aimed at the popular market, you have to like the common names under which the plants are listed – my favourite is “Lemon Pledge-Scented Pincushion” (for Mam baumii). Nevertheless there is much of interest in this book which starts with the usual introductory sections before going on to the plants organised by plant form and the information includes culinary uses! The colour photos include both plants in cultivation – in pots as well as bedded out - and habitat and there are some impressive clumps and attractive examples so well worth the inexpensive cost. 2012 9 x 8 227 pages
