Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Where most bulbs books repeat the seasonal approach to bulb gardening by bloom time, assuming the usual fall ritual of mass planting bulbs by the bushel, this book advocates more careful study of natural habitats and cultural needs before planting. All gardeners have experienced the frustration of having a bulb flower in the first year after planting, but poorly or never again thereafter. Judy Glattstein shows how a more naturalistic style of planting can pay greater dividends over time from healthy and thriving populations of bulbs. She uses a broad definition of bulbs, including a wide diversity of bulbs, corms, and tubers. By grouping them together with other plants that excel in similar conditions, she shows how all styles of gardens can prove more durable and require less maintenance in the long term. Perhaps most importantly, she emphasizes that choices based on climate and local ecology will yield a garden that truly "belongs" where it has been sited. Following her extensive research and travel throughout North America to visit hundreds of gardens, Glattstein offers detailed, regionally appropriate suggestions for gardeners everywhere.

Book News Annotation:

Garden consultant and author Glattstein teaches at the New York Botanical Garden and the Continuing Professional Education Department at Rutgers U. She offers a new approach to incorporating bulbs based on matching the plants to the garden habitats where they will have the best chance of thriving. The text covers the full range of geophytes--bulbs, corms, tubers, tuberous roots, and rhizomes--and includes general discussion of geophytes, their care and cultivation, followed by chapters on geophytes for specific environments--temperate woodland, native North American woodland, Mediterranean, Texas, the south and southeastern U.S., damp to wet places, rock gardens, and autumn gardens. Illustrated with color photographs and b&w diagrams.

About the Author

Judy Glattstein is a garden consultant and the author of several gardening books—Bulbs for Garden Habitats is her third book on bulbs—and numerous magazine and newspaper articles. She is a popular instructor at the New York Botanical Garden and the Cook College Office of Continuing Professional Education at Rutgers University and lectures widely both in the United States and abroad. An enthusiastic gardener, she finds less time available for her own garden in western New Jersey than she would like; nonetheless, the tens of thousands of bulbs she's planted return year after year whether or not she finishes all her garden chores.
