Flower Bulb Information
The Web site of the U.S. Netherlands Flower Bulb Information Center offers practical information on choosing and planting bulbs. It also offers articles on a number of other bulb-related topics, including heirloom varieties, designing with color, and managing pests, plus information about forcing bulbs for indoor bloom.


HortIdeas Newsletter
HortIdeas, published by Gregory and Patricia Y. Williams, is a small, purely informational newsletter for dedicated gardeners who want to "dig a little deeper" into their hobby. Articles include book reviews, reports on the latest research results and plant trials, plant lists, and information on conferences nationwide. Sometimes the articles seem a little too detailed (for example, listing research data when a summary would do), but I generally find something useful and/or fascinating in every issue, and it's a nice break from all the glossy, but often superficial, gardening magazines on the newsstands. Get a sample issue and see what you think. For more information, do a Web search using the keyword "HortIdeas" or write to HortIdeas, 750 Black Lick Road, Gravel Switch, KY 40328.
