Links I Like

Here are links to some web sites I think will be useful to you.


Fall is for planting, and planting bulbs ensures a beautiful spring. These buried treasures packed in a plain brown wrapper hold a rainbow's worth of flowers. Summer is not too early to order, so you can choose from the widest selection. Then, once the weather is mild and settled, gardeners in cold winter climates can plant tender bulbs to beautify their summer gardens. Gardeners in mild winter areas can enjoy them as permanent additions to their landscapes.

Bulb Information Lots of useful information - general advice on how to grow bulbs in the garden, pot them up for early flowers indoors, and specific information about some bulbs.

The Pacific Bulb Society Wiki This is the place to go if you are a dedicated bulb lover. As well as familiar tulips and daffodils, here is where you can find information about funky far-out bulbs like Scadoxus, Lycoris, and Rhodophiala. Useful online information open to all, while membership benefits include, among other things, a forum, a journal and a seed exchange.
