Review Text

  • By Nannette13 on 27 March 2017

    Good pictures and well described. A little disappointed that It doesn't actually do what it says ie: tell you how to grow orchids on your windowsills! I was expecting more information on which windows to use (north/south etc) and what to do with them after flowering etc. Would only recommend as a general orchid reference book.

  • By Mrs. Angela READ on 25 May 2017

    Perfect book for the nervous beginner (who doesn't really like orchids, but was given one to try and coax into re-flowering)! All the information, together with helpful tips, is there. Now I am almost looking forward to getting some new flowers.

    Orchids can seem intimidating at first but this book is the perfect introduction. It goes through exactly what your orchid species needs and common pitfalls to watch out for.

    Great disappointment, nothing like it was described or the picture provided. The book was badly repaired and water damaged, some pages were stuck together.
