    Book details

The Orchid Expert is one of the books in the Expert series written by the world's best-selling gardening author.

Orchids are the supermodels of the plant world, but how do you look after them?The label is usually not much help.There may be little or no background to what it is or what it needs, and sadly the plants are often thrown away once the flowers have faded.

The Orchid Expert shows you how to get them to bloom again, and so transform them into permanent members of your home.Unique Expert-style diagrams show you how to put a name to that orchid and also reveal the secrets of successful care.Troubles are clearly illustrated and answered, and the weird and wonderful life story of these fascinating plants is explained.With full-page colour photographs of the beautiful and the unusual, The Orchid Expert wipes away the mystery of these magical flowers.

"His books are straightforward, easy to understand, and packed full of sound advice.The Orchid Expert is an excellent addition to this series." (The Sun)"Attractive as they are, these plants still strike fear into the hearts of even experienced gardeners.This book looks to change our view, showing us that with a little knowledge you can keep your plant not only happily in flower, but persuade it to bloom again and again.If you've resisted the world of orchids until now, The Orchid Expert would be worth investing in to ensure you begin on the right path.Who know?It could be the start of a whole new hobby!" (Garden News)"The clarity of the illustrations has always been your hallmark, and here we have it again, making everything simple instead of mysterious.What a clever fellow you are, but I knew that.It will cheer up a lot of people who have tried and failed.How astounding some of the less well known varieties are.They look like mad inventions, nature at its oddest." (Dowager Duchess of Devonshire)

  • By Mark the Plantsman on 1 February 2012

    I was looking for a book on orchids that gave me essential basic and additional detailed information on how to grow and care for different species of these flowering plants. The 'Orchid Expert' covers all aspects of growing and maintenance/care of these beautiful flowers in a easy to understand book for an orchid beginner/enthusiast, at a very reasonable selling price. I am very pleased with my purchase. Well worth buying.
