About this book

In this personal selection and authoritative guide to the most gorgeous bulbs on the earth, Anna Pavord, world-famous author of "The Tulip", writes charmingly about her favourite subject from Acis to Zigadenus via Tulip and Crocus. After a fascinating introduction explaining why bulbs are different from other kinds of plant, where they come from, and their history, the different types of bulbs are featured alphabetically in a jewel-box-like gallery.

Throughout this gallery, each plant is beautifully illustrated by award-winning photographer Andrew Lawson. Anna describes each of the bulbous plants in detail, furnishing us with all the information we could ever need, including facts common to each group, growing information, and how to use the bulb in the garden. Bringing each bulb to life with beautiful description, anecdote and historical tale, Anna's enthusiasm for these delicious plants can only be described as infectious.
