DAFFODILS FOR AMER GARDENSUser Review - Book Verdict
This is a well-conceived guidebook and reference manual to one of the most popular flowers of all time. Although many how-to gardening books treat the narcissus family in brief, few in-depth titles are available. Included here is a compendium of recommended commercial types with photos, regional lists, and supplier information. The authors--operators of one of the top daffodil nurseries in the United States--also review the history and botany of the daffodil, its industry, how to create hybrids, growing and presenting show-winning blooms, and detailed instructions for forcing in winter. Beginners will be encouraged, and enthusiasts will gleefully make notes. For all gardening collections.--Sue Gardner, Albert Wisner P.L., Warwick, N.Y.
