Description

Orchids have never featured to any great extent as garden plants in the British Isles despite the undoubted popularity of the tropical species in glasshouses, yet more than 50 species are native to these islands and can be supposed to be hardy to our climate. This handbook of orchids details the varieties which can be successfully grown throughout the country. The fully illustrated text examines the structure, ecology, history and conservation of orchids and offers practical advice on their growth and care.show more
