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.

Recensione:

The Savage Garden by Peter d'Amato, softback published by Ten Speed Press. ISBN 978-1-60774-410-8, price 20.00 GBP available from PGUK in the UK. This best-selling guide to carnivorous plants has been revised. Whether they send shivers down your spine or you are in love them, carnivorous plants are one of the most unusual and curious groups of plants on the planet. Many have dabbled with a Venus Fly Trap, but only the truly daring would have pitcher plants that can digest a whole rat! What a talking point at dinner. I have often admired these beautiful plants at flower shows, their colours, growth and habit are intriguing. I love Sarracenias, especially S. flava and the tropical Nepenthes are some of the most photogenic plants I know. This book provides you with all you need to know to care for carnivorous plants. There are detailed descriptions on hundreds of plants including new hybrids. It includes many photographs, small but appropriate. This comprehensive book is suitable for anyone wishing to grow these plants from beginners upwards. It has become a classic handbook on the subject. --karenplatt dot co, August, 2013
