    Book details


From elegant warmth-loving moth orchids to the exquisite slipper orchid, Growing Windowsill Orchids tells you everything you need to know about successful orchid growing in the home. Written in non-technical language and copiously illustrated with photographs and informative line drawings this book provides advice on how to choose the best plant, how to look after your orchid when it has finished flowering and how to get it to flower again year after year. Cultivation advice includes the best place to grow your plants in the home, how frequently to water and feed your plants and how to keep them free from pests and disease. Step-by-step instructions explain how and when to repot your plants, what composts to use and when to water. For readers who wish to learn more about their orchids, author Philip Seaton delves into the basis of orchid biology, conservation and how plants get from the nursery to your shop.

"One of the largest plant families on the planet, orchids come in an extensive variety of floral types. This fact and the unfounded belief that they are difficult to grow have created an aura of rarity about their cultivation. . . . Seaton disputes this belief in this attractively illustrated guide to growing orchids indoors." --Marilyn K.

Review Text

  • By Mr. James R. Taylor on 23 November 2011

    This book provides the beginner, like myself, with all the information you need to start looking after the orchids you have bought. We all want to grow them to flower at least twice, that is what I aim for. This book, with many diagrams (a picture is worth a thousand words) is full of helpful drawings and photographs. I bought other books, but this book beats them all

    Concise and to the point, an excellent book for beginners, introducing them to the fascinating world of orchids.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book especially as I did not know much about orchids or their care. I went to the Orchid House in Devon while on holliday with my daughter and we loved it so much that we bought some and then I had to learn how to look after them. A great read

    The book is smaller than I thought but contains basic instructions for the beginner orchid owner plus some interesting pictures and facts about other more exotic species of orchids. good book for money.

  • By Mrs. H. D. Falkner on 23 September 2012

    Lovely book - clear and factual with beautiful photos and fabulous line drawings, and good advice for the amateur orchid grower. Delivered promptly and exactly as wanted.

    I bought this as a birthday present for my father. He loves it and has found it very usfull. He does not grow many orchids and what he does have the orchids have been bou ght as plants. So if you only have a couple of plants thenh this will be very helpfui to you.

  • By Mrs J Robinson on 5 August 2014

    Best book on orchid growing I've found. Although it does not have many lovely glossy pics. of exotic orchids it does have clear instructions and diagrams if you want to grow your own. .

  • By Meadoward on 21 May 2011

    An easy to read book which will help beginners know how to look after their orchids and maybe, extend their collections.
