Growing Orchids from Seed by Philip Seaton, Margaret Ramsay

Eighty-eight lavishly illustrated pages of coloured drawings and photographs explain everything from selecting the right kit, through to planting your own seed-raised plants in the greenhouse, teaching you step-by-step how to grow orchids confidently, successfully and professionally. Written for the amateur and the professional without access to sophisticated laboratory equipment and chemicals, Growing Orchids from Seed contains all you need to know to become an expert.
