These books by Mary Noble are a rare find indeed. We have recently acquired a relatively small quantity of these remarkable books in new condition. Known by many as the "First Lady of the Orchid World", she was born in 1917 and lived to be 88, passing away in June of 2006. She was known around the world for her expertise and passion for orchids. She founded the Jacksonville Orchid Society in 1943 and maintained a greenhouse with hundreds of varieties of orchids. She was a certified judge with the American Orchid Society and also an Honorary Vice President of the Society.

Each of her books are a treasure, simple and direct, written in a style that encourages all of us to jump in and experience the pleasure of growing these spectacular plants. Each of these paperback books have great illustrations ( pictures, drawings and diagrams ). They are easy to read books that you will be delighted to own and you can be certain will make great gifts for the experienced grower and the newest enthusiast alike.

To our knowledge these great books are now out of print and it is not known if more copies will be printed in the future.

This book also makes a wonderful gift for the grower/hobbyist you know.


Yes! She is thrilled with the orchid mix and used it ALL the next day. She thinks it is excellent material and be sure we will be back with another order. She has been collecting orchids for 41 years and said it is the best mix she has ever seen.

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.

I repotted it in the Imperial Monterey Orchid Mix that I had on hand, with a sad bloom or two still trying to hang on. Since then, it began growing new roots and leaves. The spike even began to grow/elongate, adding new buds, and rewarded me with 7 new blooms, the size of your palm. A testament that your products work wonders.

I LOVE EVERYTHING I BOUGHT FROM YOU GUYS! I'm your customer for life! When I first got my orchid mix I couldn't believe how nice it was! I've never seen such nice moss! I have suggested you to everyone I know that grows orchids. Your products are fabulous.

I don't even know where to begin! It is not often that a company impresses me the way yours has.

I am relieved to have finally found an online retailer who actually reads and responds to customer inquiries in a timely manner...My first order from was placed, confirmed, assembled and shipped in less than 12 hours!!!!! Truly Amazing..

I received the potting mix and I have to say that it is wonderful!! I was skeptical to spend a little extra money for the bark mix when I can go to Lowe's and get it for a fraction of the price. But...your mix speaks for itself! So clean, nice and easy to work with. It's the best and I plan on buying for you all again and again. Thanks so much!!

Since I had such success with that mix and the Paph mix, I have converted some of my Phals to the Imperial Mix...they are showing the same results. Strong growth, good roots and spikes. Your mixes are always fresh and distinctive. I have found nothing on the market like them and recommend them to all my orchid friends. Not sure what you put in them but keep it up.
