A Gardener's Guide to Bulbs by Christine Skelmersdale


A Gardener's Guide to Bulbs by Christine Skelmersdale

Bulbs are always a delight for gardeners, whether used to burst freely in drifts or caught to add colour and exuberance within a border or container. This book captures that sense of joy by celebrating the potential of bulbs throughout the year. Organized into seasons, it gives practical advice on growing and - especially - choosing bulbs for the garden.

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.
