Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When it comes to bulbs, readers have a wide variety of book resources; here are three new additions to the literature. Horticultural consultant Bryan (Bulbs) has written a comprehensive guide for laypeople to bulbs, corms, rhizomes, and tubers that flower from early spring through autumn. The bulk of the book, illustrated with more than 300 color photographs, is made up of a listing of bulbs alphabetized by genus. Each entry includes common name, plant description, bloom period, soil type, light requirements, planting instructions, U.S.D.A. hardiness zones, and garden uses. Where applicable, individual species are listed within an entry. Gardeners interested in growing daffodils, tulips, or hyacinths will find British horticulturist Stebbings's book a joy. Lavishly illustrated with 100 color photographs of individual flowers, Spring Bulbs describes 240 species and cultivars of daffodils, 190 of tulips, and 80 of hyacinths. Each flower is accompanied by information on history, breeding, structure, commercial production, cultivation, problems, and group classification. Stebbings describes each group and lists several cultivars, noting their colors and shapes as well as his opinions on their beauty and usefulness. If pictured, the page number of the image is also included. British garden writer Leeds (The Plantfinder's Guide to Early Bulbs) arranges his book first by season, then by scientific name. He describes a vast array of plants; advises on such topics as planning and preparation, storage, and seed propagation; and instructs on ideal conditions for growing bulbs in containers as well as how to make protective shelters and accessories. More than 100 mostly color photographs illustrate the text. Bryan's easy-to-follow guide is recommended for all gardeners while Stebbings's work is for more serious bulb growers who want descriptions of the myriad cultivars of spring's blooming bulbs. As for Leeds's book, its decidedly British slant makes it less useful for those who garden in the United States, as very few Americans garden in Leeds's relatively mild English climate. No U.S.D.A. hardiness zones are listed, but libraries in areas with similar climatic conditions will want to consider purchasing.-Sue O'Brien, Downers Grove P.L., IL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
