The Savage Garden is a really good book on CP's, its apparently one of the best but hard to find.
written by Peter D'Amato of california carnivores.

my wife found it on http://www.thebookdepository.com which is a UK site with free shipping on all orders world wide.
We've had many books from there and each seems to come shipped individually even when you place one order for a pile of books (not sure why but dont care if its free freight and they arrive)

so i get my copy of The Savage Garden today and its just like every other book we've had from there. in mint condition and complete.

so if your looking for a copy why not hit up TBD for a copy. i can now return the copy i borrowed from the ACPS member library :ugeek:

Hi Bliv :)

Ive been recommended the book, so read the trial on google. It does look very interesting and could certainly help along the way!

The Complete growers guide to Carnivorous Plants, author Barry A. Rice
my mum seen it and got it for me as a gift while on a weekend away in melbourne.
another fantastic book, and being a large hardback it would make a great book for your coffee table too :)

mine has a different cover (ive got a cobra on the front) but the title and author are the same.

It looks good, but 50 bucks is ALOT for a book

for sure, but the photography is simply stunning.

its got your usual huge wealth of info, but a lot of colour photo's, full page photo here n there..

the added cost is due to the size and quality of the images within. (imo)
