The Cotswolds are home to 27 wild orchid species. In this guide, each is described with information on identification and where to find them, although the book is not intended as a handbook and so is light on botanical detail. The author has used vernacular names throughout, and included notes about the scientific botanical names. Also included is a site guide featuring over 20 nature reserves and orchid hotspots. The author does not only celebrate the plants themselves, but also the beautiful nature reserves and areas of outstanding natural beauty in which they can be found.
