Product no.: OB21006 Notify on availability
Delivery weight: 1 kg

There are more than 2000 plants that qualify as pachyforms or "fat plants".  These are botanical beasts that either conceal massive or intricate underground bodies or in sharp contrast, become aboveground living monoliths and boulders that can make them amongst the most conspicuous components of the landscape.  Pachyforms is illustrated with over 350 colour photographs and packed with practical advice, including cultivation notes on 135 species.  This information will allow you to grow - baobabs and boojum trees; members of the passion flower family with bodies as large and wide as a witch's cauldron; species in the cucumber family that acquire the form of flying saucers; yams that generate geodesic structures; and lots more.
