Orchids to Know and Grow

SKU:  SP 432
This product qualifies for quantity discount pricing.(what's this?)
Orchids have been collected and grown for commercial purposes for more than 150 years. While these spectacular plants are increasingly available to casual gardeners and hobbyists, many still consider selecting and caring for orchids beyond their abilities. This book features easy-to-read, clearly defined chapters on identifying, classifying, and cultivating orchids. It also includes descriptions and illustrations of over 150 commonly grown orchid genera.

Authors Tom Sheehan and Bob Black provide valuable tips on selecting good specimens to buy and on caring for them under various conditions found in either a home or greenhouse. For enthusiasts, they offer advice on preparing plants for exhibition and chapters on the uses of orchids, orchid items as collectibles, diseases, insects, physiological problems, and special growing arrangements like greenhouses and shade structures. The book also boasts the best and most complete illustrated glossary of orchid terminology on the market. It features 64 color and 296 black-and-white illustrations, totaling 320 pages.
