"Bulbs for Garden Habitats" attempts to cover a lot of material for one book--lots of detail presented in a rather dry style, something like a text book or eight research papers bound together.
Ms. Glattsein addresses bulb gardening from A to Z , with special emphasis on natural habitats for bulbs gardens, and then presents suggestions of less popular and rarer bulbs in specialty chapters for the Southeast, Texas, and Mediterranean climates, woodland, rock gardens, and so on from there.
The photography and page layouts leave a lot to be desired for those who read for enjoyment as well as information gathering.
Ms. Glattstein gardens in western New Jersey, and information she gathered during international travel and while teaching at the New York Botanical Gardens adds depth and breadth to her thesis presentation.
