   schema:description "A brief look is also taken at orchids suitable for growing in the garden including those that can be grown in containers for summer display." "Today the majority of plants and cut flowers on sale are hybrids, but the wild species continue to hold a special charm for many enthusiasts. In all, Joyce Stewart describes well over 500 species and hybrids of this immense family.

The main body of the book is concerned with the principles of growing, propagating, and caring for orchids in temperate regions. Discussions of the environmental conditions found where orchids grow in the wild help to give enthusiasts a clearer understanding of the cultural needs of the plants under cultivation. Many of the orchids described in this book can be grown with success in a conservatory or on a windowsill, while others need rather more specific conditions that can be provided by a plant case or greenhouse." ;
