About this book

Orchids have a reputation for being hard to grow, but this comprehensive manual will lead gardeners straight to the best variety to cultivate in their climate, while providing all the necessary information to make their flowers flourish.

Dozens of dazzling photographs showcase many of these exotic blooms, while detailed sections discuss how to raise them indoors and in growing cases, as well as in greenhouses. Home Gardener's Orchids also contains plenty of advice on watering, misting, composts, heating and cooling, repotting and dealing with pests and diseases.

This remarkable illustrated A-to-Z features important tips for every orchid, and includes notes on whether it is easy to grow and where to grow it, what temperature it needs and much more.
