The Gardener's Guide to Growing Fritillaries is both a comprehensive and wide-ranging study of the genus and the first book for gardeners on these captivating spring flowers. Given the right conditions, a large number of species thrive outdoors in border, rock garden or trough while the remaining species (many of which require a greenhouse or alpine house) will challenge enthusiasts and collectors with their precise individual requirements. The book features a wealth of practical advice on cultivation, propagation and breeding, plant associations and an extensive A-Z plant directory listing over 80 species, varieties and hybrids. Committed enthusiasts will enjoy the chapters on the plant's history and botany as well as information on fritillaries in the wild, national collections and 'people and their plants'.
