Book Description

Wherever you live in the world, you can grow orchids in your garden. Although it may sound too good to be true, many orchids are actually low-maintenance plants for various backyard habitats and don't need special pots or greenhouses. In this exciting book, Robert Friend shows gardeners how to introduce orchids into the garden by attaching them to trees, fixing them to rocks and walls, or planting them directly into garden beds. He details more than 500 orchid choices for every garden situation and supplies practical cultivation information.

About the Author

Robert G. M. Friend's career in orchids began more than fifty years ago, when he was just ten years old. During that time, in addition to work as a lawyer, mediator, and tropical fruit orchardist, he has grown, studied, hybridized, photographed, imported, and exported orchids. He has professionally landscaped gardens with orchids, sold their cut flowers, and run a successful orchid nursery. He has traveled throughout the world visiting orchids in their natural habitats and in gardens during the research of this book. He and his wife, Lilinoe, live on the eastern coast of Australia.
