Like the first volume of this work on Bulbs by the same busy author, the second one contains historical and descriptive notes, with very full practical instructions for the successful culture of Cyclamens, Dahlias, Gladiolus, Iris, Ixias, Sparaxis, Tritonias, Babianae, Lachenalia, Ranunculus, Schizostylis, Scillas, Tigridia. All these are treated of in a thoroughly practical manner; and those who require a reliable guide to Bulb-Culture cannot do better than possess themselves of Mr Fish's handy volumes.
