Review
G. D. Dreyer Choice : Tebbitt ... makes a welcome addition to the horticultural literature with this work, particularly because it concentrates on species rather than hybrids, and description rather than cultivation. ... Over 200 color photos and numerous high-quality line drawings add to the appeal and utility of this work.
Linda Cobb Spartanburg Herald-Journal : This book is important, as it has concise descriptions, illustrations, and cultural history.
Sida, Contributions to Botany : This will be a useful book to Begonia gardeners and botanists alike.
Christine Anne Sharkey Biology Digest : Begonias is a book written by a sincere and knowledgeable lover of this diverse genus of perennial with their fabulous blooms — it will be a long-lasting addition to any...

A Begonia for Miss Applebaum
Paul Zindel

Sept 1990
Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Zindel's novel is a paean to teachers (the extraordinary ones) and to Manhattan. Its protagonists, Zelda and Henry, each have a rich store of enthusiasms and views, but most of these diverge. For instance, "Zelda is worried about the regular death that happens when you grow too old," according to Henry, while Henry himself looks out for falling objects, such as air conditioners. Yet they're united in tracing their favorite high school teacher, the exuberant Miss Applebaum, to her apartment. This generous woman is dying of cancer and happy to share her remaining, sometimes madcap, weeks with them, racing through museums and Central Park. While much of Miss Applebaum's charm must be taken on faith--she never seems quite real--readers will accept that ordinary experience grows larger for Henry and Zelda when they...

Summer Bulbs : Simple Steps for Growing Beautiful Glads, Dahlias, Begonias, Cannas, and Other Tender Bulbs
Henry Jaworski

·
 
Book Description
Their names sound as exotic as the blossoms they produce - gloxinias, tigridias, sprekelias - and only begin to hint at the exciting world of color and fragrance that awaits those who venture beyond the local garden center's bins of tulips and daffodils. And while their names may not exactly roll off the tongue, tender bulbs share one key advantage of their better-known relatives: simplicity. Everything required to produce strikingly beautiful blooms comes in a convenient package just waiting for the proper conditions to grow and flourish, returning year after year, provided some basic conditions are met. Tender bulbs are tailor-made for the modern gardener who is always looking for something new to grow, yet who may lack the time or space to maintain elaborate flower beds. These bulbs thrive in containers and quickly...
