About this product
- DescriptionGrowing Hardy Orchids introduces an exciting array of orchids from 47 diverse genera that can be cultivated in a cool greenhouse or outside, in their rightful place among other temperate garden plants. Taking important lessons from the orchids' natural histories and life cycles, the authors provide practical information on all aspects of growing hardy orchids: raising plants from seed, vegetative propagation, cultivation in pots and in open ground, coping with pests and diseases and orchid conservation. By focusing on orchids that are 'easy to raise', including hardy hybrids, Growing Hardy Orchids shows how orchids need longer be under-utilised in our gardens.
