The Plant Lover's Guide To Tulips
Tulips are one of the most popular spring-flowering bulbs. Available in a huge range of colors and in a wide array of shapes, they’re a mainstay of most spring gardens. They are the focus of festivals worldwide and are a sure sign spring is on the way. The Plant Lover’s Guide to Tulips, by Richard Wilford of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, profiles 100 commonly available species and cultivars, and features growing information, recommendations for companion plants, and tips on how to use tulips in the landscape. More than 250 color photographs bring these colorful gems to life.
Richard Wilford is the collections manager for the Hardy Display section at the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew. He has a particular interest in bulbs and is a member of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Bulb Committee (formally the Daffodil and Tulip Committee). He writes for Kew Magazine and Garden Illustrated among others, and serves on the Publications Committee for Kew Publishing and the editorial committees of Kew Magazine and Curtis’s Botanical Magazine. This is his fourth book, all of them illustrated extensively with his photos.
