About the book:

Do you enjoy collecting and growing orchids? If yes, then The New Encyclopedia Of Orchids is for you. The book contains detailed information of 1500 cultivated species in 350 genera. The contents include: introduction, cultivation, pests and diseases, conservation and propagation, A-Z list of orchids, glossary, bibliography, index to common names, and index to scientific names.


My Comments:

The photography is top shelf and the description, cultivation, and country of origin, for each orchid is extremely helpful. If you are a collector, horticulturist, or an individual interested in orchids, then this spectacular, heavy, jammed packed book is a must for your library.
