Introducing Orchids Reviews

At last - an orchid book offering more than just pretty pictures. Renowned orchid specialists Brian and Wilma Rittershausen share their in-depth expertise with the general grower, explaining in simple language how to get the best from your plant. With the numerous varieties and cultivars now on sale in garden centres and even supermarkets, few have detailed cultivation advice. As such they tend to be regarded as "disposable" flowers - flowering for up to 12 weeks before being replaced with another. But it is easy to keep them year after year with regular production of flowers with just a little help from the Rittershausens. Presented in an easy-to-read format with sections on easy, fairly easy and needs care selections of plants, it is accompanied by the stunning photographs of Linda Burgess. A must for all orchid lovers and growers, it is the best work on the subject for the general enthusiast on the market at the moment. - Lucy Watson
