As a bulb-lover from way back, I think this book really is the Bible for any gardener who loves bulbs. The authors include details of where the bulbs originated, heaps of varieties of each type of bulb, and the growing conditions, etc that everyone needs to know to grow their bulbs successfully. I would recommend this book to any serious gardener without reservation.
It there are times when you want a picture for clarity or identification, this book and series are great. It is always nice to see beautiful photos, but this book is more.
Open a page and you'll see. Whole flowering bulbs are depictited from flower to roots. Detailed comparison of varieties is shown. Very nice.
It's lovely and useful book.
This is a great reference book. It has pictures of every type of bulb
