Orchids - A Guide to Cultivation
Orchids are often perceived as difficult to grow and care for, yet with appropriate guidance they are well within the capabilities of any gardener. Here, Keith Marshall gives a introduction to orchids and their ecology, before explaining how to grow them and outlining the conditions needed for their cultivation, including light, humidity, feed, water, warmth, pests and diseases. Orchids in the home and greenhouse are covered, as are subjects such as re-potting and types of compost.
Illustrated with the authors own photographs and drawings by his wife, a botanical illustrator, this will be an invaluable guide for anyone interested in the cultivation and propagation of these beautiful exotic plants.
