Pronunciation of botanical names

Hi Mary,
there is a great little book I bought years ago to help me.
"Dictionary of Plant Names", published by Timer Press and written by Allen
J. Coombes. The ISBN No. is 0-88192-0213-1 Printed in Finland. You should still be able
to get it.

The description says " Tor pronunciation, derivation and meaning of botanical
names, and their common-name equivalent"  t has been very helpful for me and is very well set out. It is general though, not just bulbs.
If there is one specifically for bulbs I would be interested.
Hope this helps.
