I have the book too!!! I loved it, And I bookmarked some of the pages... Wait I bookmarked all of them... It gave me some nice tips and it inspired me to try to grow and propagate some of my plants.... It's a good buy...
I just got three books from the library about growing and caring for cp's, but it sounds as if "The Savage Garden" is sort of the bible for cp growers? I'll have to see if I can get that one. Thanks for the review.
Thanks Flytrapgurl for posting about it in here. Its definately required reading for anyone who is interested in CPs. The info is invaluable, and its just packed full of awesome full color pics. I can see now that its going to be near the top of my Christmas list this year hehe
OO OO! OO OO! I got it! I GOT IT!!! I've already read all the way up to the Sarracenia section!!! I found out several things: ''self-watering'' pots do not keep the soil moist enough for CPs(I'm very GLAD I discovered that! I was planing on putting my VFT seedlings it one of those! BAD me!!! ), and I found out that it's actually very easy to grow VFTs from a leaf cutting! WOOHOO! ***dances around like an idiot***
If you have a place that does a fish fry business near you, ask if they will give/sell you the containers that they get the fish in. I got 15 of these bins which are stablilized plastic (unlike clothing storage bins) for a buck apiece. They are 5 inches deep and will hold about a dozen 4 inch pots.
