Forcing, Etc: The Indoor Gardener's Guide to Bringing Builbs, Branches & Houseplants Into Bloom Reviews
I first read this book from the library, enjoyed it so much decided to order it from Amazon.
Beautiful book in excellent condition. Quite pleased.
Cheap, but not useful. Not even a chart to refer to when attempting to force bulbs by type. Pretty photos with display idea, but would not buy again.
Great book--great ideas--gave me all of the information I needed plus more innovative ideas--well worth the money. Would definately recommend to others.
Lots of nice pictures. Perhaps could have used a bit more text descriptions of the forcing process and alternatives. Good ideas for presentations.
I enjoyed selecting this product. It served my purpose and my immediate needs, it was informative and a perfect gift (to myself or others.).
It's a nice coffee table book. Something you look at once, then never touch again. Clearly not a reference book.
I absolutely agree with the review given by Tom Krischan on 1/28/2000. This book is beautiful to look at, with lots of photographs that are well-taken and gorgeously displayed. That's the good part.... Unfortunately there isn't a lot of information in here that even the most basic gardener wouldn't already know from other sources. Bulbs are the primary area of discussion, with houseplants and cuttings from trees and shrubs also being discussed sparingly. It's not the best book for in-depth answers to your other forcing needs. It is nice to look at, though. A definite fixture for aesthetics on my coffee table at home, if nothing else.
