Summer Bulb Guide
If you are thinking about growing some of the tender, non-cold-hardy, so-called summer bulbs, or would like to expand the variety of summer bulbs in your garden, the U.S. Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center Web site is a great place to start. Here you will find information about all kinds of tender bulbs, the growing conditions they need, how to use them in the garden or in containers, and how to handle them over the winter if you want to save them from year to year.
