Cultivating Carnivorous Plants

THE SAVAGE GARDEN

by PETER D'AMATO

Large-Format Paperback; Illustrated Throughout with Beautiful Color Photos; A Whopping 314 Pages!

Get ready to enter the strange and beautiful world of carnivorous plants! Beautiful, exotic, and surprisingly easy to grow, many of these savage beauties thrive in gardens, terrariums, and windowsills just about anywhere. Whether you're a total beginner who's just bought your first Venus fly trap or an expert looking for new, ever more bizarre plants, this is the book for you.

Packed with indoor and outdoor gardening hints, tips on keeping your carnivores happy, healthy, and hungry, and hundreds of glorious clolor photos, The Savage Garden is hands-down the most comprehensive guide to these fascinating oddities of the plant world.  It also includes:

  • Everything you need to get started ­ from which plants grow best where, to setting up a terrarium, to what you should know about soil, water, lighting, and propagation.
  • Species-by-species descriptions of hundreds of plants, from the most popular to the most peculiar.
  • Detailed growing information on each family of plants.
  • and everything else you need to create and nurture your very own little garden of horrors.

PETER D'AMATO, has been growing flesh-eating plants for over thirty years. His nursery, California Carnivores, houses the world's largest collection of carnivorous plants.


Condition: As New. There is a bump (dogear type) effecting the upper right corner of the first four pages. Otherwise unread, unmarked and unhandled.

Payment: PayPal only (Sorry, but Ebay has mandated it, and a merchant account for credit cards makes no sense for a small seller like me). All items to be paid for within 7 days of the end of the auction. If you are bidding on multiple items and need more than 7 days to complete payment, please be sure to contact me.

If an item remains unpaid for 14 days, I begin the Unpaid Item process with eBay to recover my eBay fees, will relist the item, and leave negative feedback.

Shipping: To be paid by Buyer. Please Note: Sellers are not responsible for service transit time. This information is provided by the carrier (U.S. Postal Service, UPS) and excludes weekends and holidays. Carrier's transit times can vary considerably during peak periods. Therefore, I make no guarantees about transit times, but I will put your package into the carrier's system in no more than two business days after payment is received.

Shipping Insurance: Recommended, particularly for expensive items and international shipments. I pack my items with great care, and I will not replace an item that has been damaged in transit -- this issue is between the Buyer and the carrier (U.S. Postal Service, UPS, etc.). Insurance costs are included in my quoted shipping rate.

International Bidders: Please check with me before bidding about shipping costs to avoid surprises! Payment must be PayPal.

Feedback: I leave positive feedback for all of my customers who pay on time and leave me positive feedback. As soon as I receive your feedback, I will leave feedback for you. To avoid negative feedback, please do not bid on an item if you are unable to honor the bid price.
