Excellent book, perfect for a novice like me
The visual guide is brilliant as I’m more of a ‘does it look right’ person so can relate better to what it looks like rather than books that give you pages of descriptions for one thing. This would be a great gift for anyone, young and old as the writing style suits any age. Perfect for getting the children interested in gardening. For the price it’s an absolute bargain. Get one, you won’t regret it.
Easy to read and very informative
I received this book as a present and what a joy it is. I was really impressed with the photos and descriptions of each of the wide variety of Semps. It's inspired me to buy more knowing I can relate back to the book for advice and information. Brilliant.
This is such a great book. Written with enthusiasm and knowledge, it will help you to enjoy semps and get the most out of them. The beautiful colour photographs are useful and inspiring, and I shall definitely be adding to my small collection this year.

About V J Fletcher
I have always been artistic, with a love for reading and a passion for writing. However, family commitments and lack of time kept me too busy to pursue that passion. I spent most of my career working in Finance, but a change in circumstance this year, provided me with an opportunity and the time to write.I love being outdoors and all things flora and fauna. I decided that my first project should be about growing Sempervivums. My partner Andy takes such brilliant photographs that it seemed only right to collaborate with him. The vision for our book was to fill it with beautiful colour photographs and informal, but informative information.We both love learning about different plants and how to grow them. We used to own a nursery and garden centre and have always loved succulent and alpine plants, especially Sempervivums, which really caught our interest. In fact, they have become more of an obsession in the last few years. We grew from being beginners, to Sempervivum enthusiasts in a very short space of time.Writing the Sempervivum book has been an exciting start to my new career as an author. Even more exciting for me though, is my debut novel, due out in the new year.

Game On - debut novel coming soon
I’m delighted to announce my debut novel, Game On, which will be available in early 2023.The Ladies Darts Team meet once a week. Eight women, who put their worries aside, laugh, cry and share secrets. Each one fighting her own private battle:– Jane’s husband retired early and she can’t wait to join him
– Frida, loving life, playing hard, whatever the cost
– Marie is lonely, she lives for Wednesdays
– Annie loves her children, but sometimes her anxiety overwhelms her
– Karen, a keep-fit fanatic with a secret
– Lizzie lives with mum and dad and seems to have no cares
– Star, beautiful and talented, the best player on the team
– Mel is about to learn that friends are not just for Wednesdays…Excerpt
As she climbed into his car, she noticed how his hands were gripping the steering wheel and sensed right away that she was in trouble.“Where the hell have you been ‘til this time?” he snarled at her.“I couldn’t help it,” she said. The games took longer than normal and I had to wait for everyone else so I could have a lift back in the minibus.” She thought he must be able to hear her heart thudding in her chest, her mouth dry, her hands and knees trembling.“Why are you giving me lip? I asked where you’d been, not for your friggin’ life story!”
As he grabbed a handful of her hair, tugging her head back against the headrest, she let out a cry.“I’ve been to the Rose & Crown at Kinworth, you’re hurting me!” she whispered.“I will hurt you, you sneaky little bitch!” With that he pushed her head forward as hard as he could.Her face smashed against the dashboard, eyes closed; a thousand lights exploding inside her head. White hot pain shooting through her nose and mouth, as she rebounded she thought her neck would break. On her tongue, the familiar taste of blood.
