Succulent Plant Business Training Manual

The e-books on my site that will get you out the starting gate with a well rounded knowledge of propagation, xeriscaping and pest control are sold separately.

The most popular of these three e-books is all about propagating more of these fabulous plants - that seems to be where people first get the succulent plant bug. 

Xeriscaping is the method of choice for creating a drought tolerant garden that requires little maintenance and even smaller amounts of water, yet they will take your breath away with their lushness, flowering plants and the sheer numbers of bees and butterflies that they attract.

Speaking of insects, they're not all good. 

The Plant Pests Handbook is the go-to self help hand book to dealing with many pests, as well as assisting you to determine if the pest is in fact a pest or a helper in the garden.

There are recipes and other methods to help get rid of pests without damaging the ecosystem.



The art of succulent plant propagation can be a steep learning curve, as these are plants like no others, with particular requirements for making more of themselves.

Whether you are attempting to grow them from cuttings, single leaves, or from seed, this is the go-to handbook to give you my special techniques that have been perfected in my nursery.

There are bound to be methods that work for you, or that you discover or adapt for your own special conditions, but this e-book covers the basics to get you started quickly.



The xeriscaping methods and tips that you will gain from this e-book will give you a solid background on design, water control, mulching and planting to have a really beautiful garden that requires very little extra water once established.

Your clients will be thrilled to have your help to get their low maintenance landscaping going if that's your niche.

Whether you're designing the garden from scratch, or maintaining an existing one, this e-book will give you the insight you'll need into this interesting and earth friendly gardening trend.


There are lots of pests, and lots of other insects that are classed as beneficial - but which are which? 

Find out how to determine the difference, and how to deal with those that are damaging your plants. 

Also included is an extensive list of many recipes for chemical free options that work.

No matter what you do there will always be something wanting to eat your hard won success. Succulents are generally not that appealing to insects, but there are a few problems that will need to be addressed from time to time.

Succulents are not like other plants, so the methods of dealing with pests will differ too.

In some cases their delicate tissues can't stand the harsh chemical pest treatments of other plants, so you need to come up with other methods. 

Another aspect of pest control is that due to allergies and sensitivities that are getting more and more common, anything that you make for sale has to be free from chemicals of any kind.


Get the basics; this handbook is where to start, with easy to follow instructions that you can follow yourself if you're not a confident grower of succulents yet, and also to help your customers to keep their own plants looking fantastic.

There are a few really important aspects of growing succulents. 

They range from a deep understanding of watering, the correct way to do it, and why, to what needs to happen when pruning them.

If you can master these skills, you'll have no problem producing plants that walk off with their new owners.

Greenhouse Gardening e-Book - it's everything you need to get going with your own greenhouse plans.

Greenhouse Gardening - The Care and Feeding of the Dream Greenhouse

This e-book can help you design your dream greenhouse, from the ground up.  Decide on whether to have a Gothic arch poly tube greenhouse or a romantic Victorian style using recycled windows. 

Greenhouse gardening can be the most enthralling hobby, but the pitfalls and tribulations of planning your dream greenhouse can be challenging – not to worry, I’ve made all the mistakes for you.  I’ll tell you the pros and cons of each type of structure and how these greenhouse ideas can work for you. 

Decide whether you’ll make a greenhouse from salvaged windows and architectural trim, with great charm and a vintage look, or if you’ll make your own greenhouse to be an easy to maintain structure with more businesslike characteristics.

A lean to greenhouse  will take advantage of an existing building for one of its walls – if cheaper construction is key to your success, then by all means use this method.

A hoop house can be constructed more cheaply than an actual greenhouse, and may be all you need.  In most cases these are built tall enough to stand in, and provide protection for winter gardening crops or as shelter for seedlings until they can be moved outdoors.

Another cheap option is the pvc greenhouse, built from readily available supplies.

You may decide that all you need is a mini greenhouse.

Mini greenhouses are sometimes portable, generally small enough that you can grow a few flats of seedlings, or even a couple of tomato plants comfortably.  If this is an option that would suit your growing needs, find out a few different ideas.

Need help with planning and building staging for your plants?  I’ll tell you more about each option, and where they are the best choices.

What about pest control?  How do you keep mice, chipmunks and other vermin from marauding in your greenhouse and destroying your valuable plants?

How do you fight insects in the greenhouse?  Where do you start, and what are the cheapest and easiest ways (besides spraying deadly chemicals)?

Starting a greenhouse, whether it’s simply as a pleasant leisure activity, or with the more serious aim of starting a greenhouse business, growing plants for sale, use this Greenhouse Management Guide to help you along the way to successful, thriving greenhouse growing.
