About this book

From elegant warmth-loving moth orchids to exquisite slipper orchid, Growing Windowsill Orchids tells you everything you need to know about successful orchid growing in the home. Written in non-technical language and copiously illustrated with photographs and informative line drawings, this new edition of the bestselling book provides advice on how to choose the best plant, how to look after your orchid when it has finished flowering and how to get it to flower again year after year.

Cultivation advice includes the best place to grow your plants in the home, how frequently to water and feed your plants and how to keep them free from pests and disease. Step-by-step instructions explain how and when to repot your plants, what composts to use and when to water. For readers who wish to learn more about their orchids, Phil delves into the basis of orchid biology, conservation and how plants get from the nursery to your shop.

The second edition has up to date information as well as new advancements in orchid conservation that relate back to the orchid growing in your home.
