RHS Orchids Reviews

Brother and sister Brian and Wilma Rittershausen are renowned world experts on the genus Orchids and this is underlined and endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society in this superb, lavishly illustrated guide. Covering their history, diversity and native habitats together with their care and cultivation in the home, the Rittershausen's sound knowledge and many years of experience of growing these exotic plants shines through. Orchids have been coveted for centuries and men have fought over them, lost their lives searching for them, faced financial ruin in their desire to possess the more elusive species. Today though they are readily found in garden centres, and even supermarkets, offering excellent value for money with their long-lasting flowers. But to get them to flower again is often thought of as difficult when in reality a little knowledge of their natural growth habits shows how easy it is, with a modicum of care and attention, to ensure flowers year after year. This is a comprehensive and concise guide for all those interested in growing these fascinating, varied plants, clearly explaining the various cultivation details along with an easy-to-read text peppered with fascinating facts. A must for all orchid lovers. - Lucy Watson
