Product description

From elegant warmth-loving moth orchids to the exquisite slipper orchid, Growing Windowsill Orchids tells you everything you need to know about successful orchid growing in the home. Written in non-technical language and copiously illustrated with photographs and informative line drawings this book provides advice on how to choose the best plant, how to look after your orchid when it has finished flowering and how to get it to flower again year after year. Cultivation advice includes the best place to grow your plants in the home, how frequently to water and feed your plants and how to keep them free from pests and disease. Step-by-step instructions explain how and when to repot your plants, what composts to use and when to water. For readers who wish to learn more about their orchids, author Philip Seaton delves into the basis of orchid biology, conservation and how plants get from the nursery to your shop.

Review quote

"One of the largest plant families on the planet, orchids come in an extensive variety of floral types. This fact and the unfounded belief that they are difficult to grow have created an aura of rarity about their cultivation. . . . Seaton disputes this belief in this attractively illustrated guide to growing orchids indoors." --Marilyn K. Alaimo"Chicago Botanic Garden" (01/01/2011)
