Orchids of the British Isles

Publisher: Cheltenham, Griffin Press Ltd., 2005. (1st Edition).
xvii + 390pp with numerous full colour illus. This book is published in association with The Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh and combines authoritative information with magnificent photography to celebrate the wild orchids of Great Britain and Ireland. It links the observations of early botanists to the most up-to-date research, surveying four hundred years of fascination with these charismatic and often threatened plants. Each of the 55 orchid species recorded from the British Isles, is described in full, with detailed information given on botanical history, biology, habitats and conservation requirements. Numerous variants and hybrids are also discussed and illustrated. Close-up photography reveals the details of individual flowers, while plant portraits and habitat studies complete the account of each species. Supporting the species accounts are chapters explaining orchid biology, taxonomy, identification, ecology and distribution. Special attention is given to conservation - effective management of habitats and population will be essential if we are to continue to enjoy our native orchids - and also to cultivation, introducing practical approaches to encouraging orchids in gardens. Finally, complementing the extraordinary images that appear throughout the book is a chapter giving detailed advice on techniques for success when photographing orchids. Anyone who enjoys the countryside and its wild plants will find this book an essential companion in seeking and identifying the native orchids of the British Isles."

Kramer, Jack:  
Botanical Orchids and how to grow them.

Publisher: Woodbridge, Garden Art Press, 2003 (reprint).
222pp with numerous full colour illus. "The names of those early orchid hunters are preserved today in the Latin names by which the orchids they discovered are still known, In the last two decades orchids have been subject to extensive hybridisation in the search for novelty and ever more fantastic colours and shapes; indeed thousands upon thousands of hybrids have appeared. Jack Kramer concentrates on the original botanical orchids as they appeared in nature and their habitats. These orchids had waned in popularity with the introduction of the new hybrids and were also at risk in many cases of extinction as their natural habitats were despoiled and ravaged by man. Fortunately, new cloning techniques have rescued such endangered species from oblivion. This book addresses the technical needs of the novice orchid enthusiast in choosing species appropriate to the climate and facilities available, as well as guiding the beginner in the basics of orchid cultivation. ‘The lesson to be learned is that you can successfully raise orchids as long as you select the species appropriate to your growing environment, whether that is a conservatory, greenhouse, garden room or window-silI in your home.’ A major feature of the book is the Gallery of Orchids which covers over 350 different botanical orchids, many of them illustrated. Botanical Orchids contains practical advice, history and easy to use reference material and will be a welcome addition to the gardener’s library." Fine cond : fine cond d/w. 11 x 8 1/2 inches
