With some 30 years experience of growing and writing about bulbs, Richard Wilford shares his expert knowledge on choosing the best bulbs to grow. His step by step instructions cover all aspects of bulb growing with chapters on planting, naturalising, growing bulbs in pots, what and when to buy, how to select the best bulbs, keeping pests and diseases at bay and, for the more adventurous, propagating plants.
