The Kew Gardener's Guide to Growing Orchids : The Art and Science to Grow Your Own Orchids Hardback

Part of the Kew Experts series



This inspirational book from Kew's orchid experts reveals the easiest, most attractive and most popular plants to grow today. Orchids come from the second largest plant family (with 28,000 members) and have a reputation for diversity and trickiness - but expert Philip Seaton chooses 60 of the best species to become permanent and happy members of your home. Through a combination of 12 projects and easy to follow practical advice he shows how to welcome new plants, to revive their flagging spirits as well as their basic care and cultivation.

He shows how to produce and train flowers, to collect and sow their seed, and how to plant and display them in a terrarium, or on bark or in a basket.

Find out when to water them, how to repot them and the ideal room and conditions that each orchid needs to thrive.

The combination of botanical beauty and practical advice will inspire beginners and experienced growers to grow new species in many different ways.
