American Bungalow"Part garden book, part international thriller, the author literally goes to the ends of the earth to discover and cultivate rare bulbs."
— Kathleen Donohue
Although adventure abounds in Buried Treasures, there's a great deal more for the gardener seeking trustworthy information. As well as being a renowned collector, Ruksans is a grower and propagator of bulbs second to none, and he generously shares his professional knowledge about the care and cultivation of every major and minor genus of bulb-forming plant. As richly diverse as the plants it describes, Buried Treasures will open your eyes to the beauty and fascination of the world of bulbs.
“The book contains well-written accounts of the adventures of a modern plant explorer, gorgeous color plates of the author’s discoveries, and perhaps best of all, insider tips on how the grow the plants [Ruksans] worked with for nearly a lifetime.”
