"A beautifully written book."-The Garden Journal

"A few garden writers offer prose that goes beyond how to spade and spray to convey the experience and pleasures of gardening. The late Elizabeth Lawrence was such a writer."-Southern Living

"First published in 1957 and out-of-print for many years, this is a delightfully written and enormously informative introduction to the fascinating variety of little bulbs available to the gardener. The author discusses a wide variety of plants, both familiar and little-known, including crocuses, species daffodils, hardy cyclamen and lily-family members such as Brodiaea, Bessera, and Calochortus."-American Horticulturist

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lawrence is one of those garden writers who bring literature, philosophy, landscape design, dirt gardening, and the voices of her friends and neighbors into the garden. Her books--"A Southern Garden," "The Little Bulb"s, "Gardens in Winter"--are enlivened by her genius for trading both plants and stories, but this one is particularly enriched by the lively notices from the "Mississippi Market Bulletin," a biweekly published by the Mississippi Department of Agriculture that advertised everything from hogs to the bulbs and plants that hard-working farm women hoped to sell for 'mad' money."
--"Natural History"
