This is a good book, full of practical information while also illustrated throughout with well placed, lovely, tempting photos. At the size of a hardback novel, it's also comfortable for reading in bed- always a plus!

Beautiful photos and detailed information on growing many species bulbs in containers. If you like to think outside the standard spring narcissus-tulip-crocus box this book will inspire your imagination.

The book has two sections--the first is organized by bloom time through the year (in England) , and the second part is by genera that are suitable for containers. Rod Leeds has served as chairman of the RHS Joint Rock Garden Plant Committee and is active in the Alpine Garden Society , and gives both practical and botanical information.

Thanks to this book, I have found and tried some amazing new bulbs.
