Spring Bulbs: Daffodils, Tulips and Hyacinths by Geoff Stebbings
A gardeners' guide to the most popular spring bulbs, covering narcissus, hyacinths and tulips - the most widely planted and, arguably, the most useful of spring garden bulbs.
This book cuts to the quick of the subject, offering solid horticultural advice and practical information on plants that are readily available and relevant to gardeners. Full background details on the plants and their cultivars are given along with advice on what to choose, how to plan their use, and what to plant them with. Additional details on breeding and commercial production will help demystify the subject for gardeners. The book is fully illustrated with over 100 stunning images of the most beautiful spring flowers.
Additional information includes an overview of the historical development of each type of spring bulb; guidance on tulips as cut flowers; daffodils for showing and pots; and the expansion of colours for Hyacinths.
