About this book

Please note: not to be confused with the 2005 book by John Tullock by the same title.

This book highlights over 150 species of hardy orchids from Europe, North America and Australia, outlining methods of propagation from seed and cultivation in glasshouse, cold frame and garden.

The authors, who have many years of experience in growing and working with orchids in horticultural and conservation projects, share their expertise in this book, with a focus on orchid life histories and structures, seed sowing techniques, isolation of fungi and vegetative propagation. They also offer advice on potting up and planting seedlings, including the selection of composts and their components, and cultivation hints for success in both pots and the garden.
