About this book

Judy Glattstein offers a new approach to planting bulbs based on matching the plants to the garden habitats where they'll be healthiest and happiest, rather than the usual autumn ritual of mass planting bulbs by the bushel. The author shows that a more naturalistic style of planting can pay greater dividends over time from healthy and thriving bulb populations. And she explains how all styles of gardens can prove more durable and require less maintenance in the long term. Following her extensive research and travel throughout North America to visit hundreds of gardens, Glattstein offers detailed, regionally appropriate suggestions for gardeners everywhere.
