About this book

This series of books presents the scientific principles that underlie production practices in horticulture. The series covers a number of major ornamental, vegetable and fruit crops, considered on a worldwide scale. The intended audience includes students and teachers in horticulture, as well as professional growers seeking to improve or update their scientific knowledge. This first volume considers ornamental bulb plants, including those with the related storage organs of corms and tubers. An immense amount of research literature has been distilled, such that general principles are stressed throughout, but common examples are considered in some detail, with less information on other species.

Contents

Horticultural uses; origins, breeding and selection; morphology; physiology; propagation; bulb, corm and tuber production; flower production; pests, diseases and disorders; future prospects.

"This book will be an important contribution for the understanding of the various aspects of bulb growing, marketing and forcing. Recommended to students in horticulture and researchers in the field of geophytes and it will also be of much help to workers in the 'bulb industry' who like to know about the fundamental characters of the products they are dealing with." --Annals of Botany
