Be inspired by nature’s design!

From the earliest snowdrops to alpine violet, tulips, and late autumn crocuses, bulbs add interest and color to the garden throughout the year. Renowned naturalistic garden designer Jacqueline van der Kloet has mastered a nonchalant and magical style, where bulbs emerge playfully, dancing among perennials and grasses. Growing Bulbs in the Natural Garden provides inspiration and insights gained from van der Kloet’s career, using nature as a model. This exquisitely photographed guide offers advice on bulb varieties, planting methods, and handy tools for gardeners working in spaces large and small.

    Piet Oudolf, author of Planting the Natural Garden
  • “Van der Kloet lends her expertise to gardeners everywhere…It’s a bulb-packed book.”
