"

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)
