This was a gift for my best friend and she LOVED it. I have never had her rave so much about a book before. She loved that you could look up each bulb species individually, OR read general information on bulbs, OR view the calendar of events in the life of bulbs. The calendar was such a time saver to her because instead of looking up each plant and what to do each month for that plant, you can just look at particular season to see what care ALL your bulbs need at once. In a week's time she has almost finished reading the entire general information section AND the information pages for each of the bulbs she has to plant. She also has read the bulb calendar for her current season and is quickly planting her bulbs before the first frost. This book really inspired her. Therefore, I recommend this book to anyone who wants to start planting bulbs because it was such a hit with my friend.
This is an excellent garden bulb handbook. Very helpful for new and/or somewhat experienced bulb gardeners. Great photos, even plenty of photos of the bulbs in the dry state, which is extremely helpful to new bulb gardeners. Tells how to plant bulbs permanently AND temporarily in the garden; step-by-step how-to's for creating indoor and outdoor seasonal bulb baskets and planters, just like the professionals do! I love it! Turned out to be exactly what I was searching for.
This book really helped us get started with bulbs--choosing the right ones for our landscape; knowing when, where, and how to plant them; and recognizing healthy bulbs that would be most likely to bloom next spring.
I liked very much.It is very gooh the explanitios.
This book is a good overview book for people new to bulb gardening. It is in good condition as promised by the seller.
