    on choosing the best bulbs to grow. His step by step instructions cover all aspects of bulb cultivation, 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.
    With the planting guide laid out seasonally, this practical handbook will show you what to plant at any time of the year. All of the popular commercial bulbs are covered including snowdrops, crocus, daffodils, fritillaries and many more.
