" Christine Skelmersdale's new book is beautifully illustrated but its chief merit lies in the huge amounts of just-what-you-want-to-know information that she's distilled into accompanying short paragraphs.
Thoroughly recommended for the general gardener and - no pun intended - top of the list for the budding bulb enthusiast. "

" This lavish guide is a cut above most others on the market. As the owner of Broadleigh Gardens in Somerset, Skelmersdale knows more about bulbs than most. She has been growing and selling them for over 40 years, and has influenced countless gardeners with her gold medal-winning displays at RHS flower shows. "
