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, 1994; $23).

This book contains a wealth of information on the culture, history, and lore of over 200 types of bulbs, along with many quality photographs. A "must have" for southern gardeners, Garden Bulbs for the South is well researched and written. Buy a copy for winter reading, and you'll have trouble putting it down.
