The B.G.S. Book Library is quite unique in the selection of books held on Gladioli. There is a wealth of information available to members, and anyone who gives talks or lectures on the subject will find plenty of interesting facts on the history of the species (from Roman times to present day) scientific data, uses (medicinal and culinary) cultivation, innovations, exhibitions and arranging. Several of the more modern ideas and techniques are really revamped from times gone by and results of such methods have been recorded within the pages of several publications. Some of the older books also have beautiful colour plates illustrating the printer art of years ago.
The Librarian also has a personal copy of the NAGC Parentage list and is willing to research parentage of cultivars. Please note this list does not include the majority of European bred cultivars.
