KIRKUS REVIEW

A valuable book for all gardeners, particularly those who wish to extend and expand their bulb culture, this is completely revised from its earlier edition, Bulbs for American Gardens, and brings up to date advances in horticultural progress. It also takes into consideration the development of American bulb growing and the post-war possibilities of European species. For the amateur, the rules of bulb culture, and the essentials of gardening care are simply described, and full information about the bulbs themselves follows. This is divided into spring and summer flowerings, rock and wild gardens, the hardy and the tender bulbs. There are illustrations by Elizabeth L. McMillin and photographs. For all its specialization an important book for garden libraries, and for easily found reference.
