Preface
Flower growing from bulbs or storage roots is most interesting. It economizes on time, space and expenses involved in cultivation. In cold climates flower growing from bulbs can be quite profitable. Commercial floriculture largely depends on the bulbous ornamentals. For a long period of the year the bulbs can be kept indoors. Only in the growing season they are planted outdoors. On planting some species, produce flowers even before producing leaves. The bulbs in the dormant condition can be transported easily like other non-perishable commodities to the customers of the far-off places. Home gardeners can purchase flower bulbs from a distant nursery through the surface mail with minimum chances of mortality. The storage roots have different forms. They may be roots or stems that grow underground. They are perennial. But the shoots that grow from them are annual. They are classified by their scientific names. According to the different forms of the storage roots they are designated with different names. However in common parlance they are called bulbs or bulbous plants . One of the most advantages of the bulbous plants is that more percentage of standard quality flowers can be raised easily than the other crop of flowers. Hence the popularity among the market growers. They with the minimum of growing cost harvest maximum of the standard crop. Secondly, the propagation, though mainly vegetative, is easy and cheap.

Holland is the pioneer and still at the top of the trade. From exporting flower bulbs and flowers from bulbous plants its foreign money rises to an incredibly great amount. The flower-growing centers grow near the cities to meet the huge demand of cut flowers in the cities. The growing trade finds the shortage of land for this purpose. But there is plenty of land in the interior of the country which can be exploited as ancillary to the main growing centers near the cities. The supply of the standard quality bulbs from the interior of the country can augment the production by saving time for growing them in the flower growing centers. This source of imputes in the form of quality planting materials can undoubtedly be a boon to the cut flower production industry. The tuberose bulbs of good quality can be grown in quantities in the plains of India for export. Those which prefer the temperate
