SUCCULENT MINIGARDENS OF GENNADY AND DENIS GIL
From the editors. In Issue 2 (12) of our magazine we published a story about the succulent collection of Denis and Gennady Gil (Krasnodar region, Russia). Today we would like to introduce their miniature succulent gardens made for indoors as well as for open ground: there are plenty of species that can overwinter outside in the climate of the Black Sea coast of Krasnodar region.
