A treat for any gardener

Whether one is a beginning orchid grower or an experienced one, this book is a marvel on information and 'know -how' on the subject. Or, if you only keep it on the coffee table to let your guests admire the beautiful photography, it might turn on the senses to something so extraordinary, they might have missed otherwise. The photography is truly superb, but not enough credit is given to the artist. The layout, graphic design and format is modern and top notch. Last and not least, you can tell that the father-Daughter team really love their thing: 'orchids'

Enthusiastically recommended for novice gardeners

Brian and Sara Rittershausen's Orchids: A Care Manual begins with a history of the orchid family as it explains all the techniques gardeners need to keep orchids in good shape. All aspects are covered including watering, feeding, lighting, temperature conditions, propagation, hybridization, and caring for orchids in pots. The clear, straight-forward, "reader friendly" text is enhanced with step-by-step color photography and line-drawn illustrations. Orchids: A Care Manual is enthusiastically recommended for novice gardeners and horticultralist hobbyists seeking an easy-to-use introduction and guide to year-round care that also includes an extensive directory of specialized and popular orchid groups.
