Orchids: A Practical Guide for Gardeners: With Advice On Growing, A Directory Of 200 Orchids, and 600 Color Photographs

In 2009, the authors of this book (Brian and Wilma Rittershausen) were awarded the Westonbirt Orchid Medal for outstanding literary achievement from this book.

Some truly great information is discovered here.  Potting techniques, orchid care tips, growing options and more are but a few examples of the invaluable information you’ll read.

It’s a beautiful balance between stunning photography and educational material.

I highly recommend giving this one a chance.
