This completely new and expanded guide provides up-to-date information on bulbs of all kinds for a variety of climates and landscapes. With information on 400 different kinds of bulbs, this comprehensive reference guide provides details to satisfy experts and basic information for those just starting to grow bulbs in their gardens.
The book begins by reviewing basic information on the nature of bulbs and their seasonal care requirements. The guide then discusses many other topics, including propagation, overwintering, hardiness and predators. Large and useful photographs of each bulb fill a "gallery," while an "encyclopedia" gives information on how to grow and care for each of the 400 bulbs in the book. This book is comprehensive, very well done, colorful and easy to follow. For anyone with an interest in bulbs, this book will be a useful source of information and advice.
