A popular new gardening book in the Kew Growing series (which includes Growing Windowsill Orchids and Growing Hardy Orchids), focusing on the growing of temperate garden bulbs in the outdoor garden. 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.
