Tulips: Species and Hybrids for the Gardener Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Species tulips are becoming more widely available as gardeners wake up to their elegant shapes, vibrant-colored flowers, and suitability for growing in containers, raised beds, and rock gardens. Unlike garden hybrids, species tulips will flower each year without being replaced and will even colonize under the right conditions. Wilford's experience of growing tulips at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, informs his excellent cultivation advice. Comprehensive descriptions of gardenworthy species and lesser-known rarities will appeal to tulip and bulb collectors, rock garden enthusiasts, and keen gardeners, inspiring closer investigation of this increasingly popular plant group.

About the Author

Richard Wilford has worked at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, for 17 years and is currently the collections manager responsible for alpines, bulbs, and herbaceous perennials. For more than six years he looked after the extensive bulb collection in Kew's Alpine Nursery, including the cultivation and propagation of the tulip collection. He then moved to the Rock Garden, growing a range of alpines and bulbs planted in the open. Richard has written articles for a range of publications as well as a book about alpine and bulbous plants that have been featured in Curtis's Botanical Magazine, for which he serves on the editorial committee.
