Description

For fifteen years, The Savage Garden has been the number one bestselling bible for those interested in growing carnivorous plants. This new edition is fully revised to include the latest developments and discoveries in the carnivorous plant world, making it the most accurate and up to date book of its kind. 

You may be familiar with the Venus flytrap, but did you know that some pitcher plants can—and do—digest an entire rat? Or that there are several hundred
species of carnivorous plants on our planet? Beautiful, unusual, and surprisingly easy to grow, flesh-eating plants thrive everywhere from windowsills to outdoor container gardens, in a wide variety of climates. The Savage Garden is the most comprehensive guide to these fascinating oddities, gloriously illustrated with more than 200 color photos. Fully revised with the latest developments in the carnivorous plant world, this new edition includes:
   •  All the basics—from watering and feeding to modern advances in artificial lighting, soil, and fertilizers.
   •  Detailed descriptions of hundreds of plants, including many of the incredible new species that have been recently discovered and hybridized.
   •  Cultivation and propagation information for all the plant families: pitcher plants, Venus flytraps, sundews, rainbow plants, bladderworts, and many other peculiar plants from the demented mind of Mother Nature.
Whether you’re a beginner with your first flytrap or an expert looking for the latest exotic specimen, this classic book has everything you need to grow your very own little garden of horrors.

Customer Reviews

Even better than the original.

Peter D'Amato has outdone himself with this revised edition of The Savage Garden. The original was a superb resource and a compelling read, but the new one is even more personal, passionate and rich in content. This will shine as an exemplary volume on the subject of carnivorous plants for decades to come.

Noteworthy: the electronic version of The Savage Garden takes full advantage of the eBook model, and is beautifully formatted (many eBooks are not) and lovingly designed. Well done!
