Description

Lavishly illustrated, Growing Hardy Orchids highlights over 150 species of hardy orchids from North America, Europe and Australia that will make it through the winter in temperate climes with little or no protection, focusing on the commercially available hardy orchid species and hybrids available through reputable nurseries and garden centres - never collecting plants or seed from wild plants.

Examining the life histories and structures of orchids, the authors share their many years of expertise on raising plants from seed and vegetative propagation, and the cultivation of plants in pots in glasshouses, and in the open ground. Advice is given on potting and planting seedlings (including selection of compost and pots) and young plants. And with the emphasis on the 'easy plants to raise' the most novice grower will not be deterred.

The stress on conservation and the reintroduction of native plants back into the wild makes Growing Hardy Orchids ideal for conservationists, project workers and teachers needing a practical, no-frills, how-to book from one of the world's orchid aficionados.
