The Complete Book of Bulbs, Corms, Tubers, and Rhizomes
By Brian Mathew, Philip Swindells
Hardback, 1995, 240 pages, very good condition, small tear in jacket

A springtime lawn flecked with brightly coloured crocuses, a profusion of summer-flowering alliums and lilies in a border, a bowl of winter hyacinths perfuming the air - this guide is designed to help readers to acheive all these things. Many of the most familiar and attractive flowers are produced from all kinds of bulbous plants. This single volume presents a practical and creative guide to choosing and growing bulbs, both indoors and outdoors. It combines comprehensive cultivation details with varied design options. Seasonal plant directories list and describe over 750 recommended species and varieties, and give advice on growth and propagation. Each directory is accompanied by an introductory essay that offers imaginative planting ideas for many situations. A special how-to section gives clear instructions on selecting, growing and caring for bulbs, and practical advice about pest and disease control. The work uses images to demonstrate effects possible to create with flowering bulbs, on their own or mixed with other plants, as well as indoor cut-flower arrangements. Step-by-step artwork serves to make the how-to information clearer. Please click here to ask a question
