Garden Bulbs for the South
Southern gardening authority Scott Ogden has provided us with the definitive work on bulb culture in our unique southern climates in Garden Bulbs for the South (Taylor Publishing Co., 1994; $23). This book provides a wealth of information on the culture, history, and lore of over 200 types of bulbs, and it contains many quality photographs. A must-have for southern gardeners, the book is well researched and well written. Buy a copy for winter reading and you'll have trouble putting it down!
