When we reach for a book about orchids, we want it to be practical, accurate, current and loaded with pictures. We have found just such a book, and it fits the bill perfectly. The Orchid Expert is a great book for new growers and seasoned growers alike. It contains 128 pages of great advice, big and small beautiful color pictures and serves as a ready reference for everything from lighting to potting, from pests to media and even a great chapter on increasing your stock, dividing, growing from cuttings and much more. There are 12 chapters including a complete index.
We love the pictures and the no nonsense approach Dr. D.G. Hessayon takes in this 2008 First Edition handy reference book. You will want it on the coffee table, in the greenhouse and for your favorite reading chair. Most importantly, you will want it at hand whenever you have a question or want an example because it is that thorough.
It will also make a wonderful gift for the grower/hobbyist you know and has a marvelous British way with words, for example organic mix is referred to as "compost" and color is spelled "colour". The book is a joy to read and look at and we also like the historical flavor that runs through the pages, so you are taken back in time and have context surrounding this wonderful and rich endeavor we love, growing and caring for orchids!
“This fall I religiously followed your advice, creating an environment of shortened
days and lower temps in order to encourage blooming...I was successful. FINALLY!! Thank you, thank you!!
Both of my plants decided to bloom and they look beautiful. I wanted to share the good news and
my gratitude with you. Thanks again!”Laurie J.
“The potting medium you sent is gorgeous!! It's superior to the bark I've been
buying at Lowe's. I can't imagine what (my orchids) will do when I put them in your potting mix. It even
smells fresh!! Many, many thanks. I'll be ordering from you again.”
