This book addresses the technical needs of the novice orchid enthusiast in choosing species appropriate to the climate and facilities available, as well as guiding the beginner in the basics of orchid cultivation. "The lesson to be learned is that you can successfully raise orchids as long as you select the species appropriate to your growing environment, whether that is a conservatory, greenhouse, garden room or window-sill in your home." A major feature of the book is the Gallery of Orchids which covers over 350 different botanical orchids, many of them illustrated. Botanical Orchids contains practical advice, history and easy-to-use reference material and will be a welcome addition to the gardener's library.
