    Great Book

    This book was recommended by The Oregonian Newspaper garden section, and boy were they correct in saying it's a wonderful book. It's not a manual, it describes certain orchids that will grow and prosper and are NOT finicky and bloom again in the same year. full size pix in the 131 pages. Buy it as a gift, you will be a hero.

    Fantastic book & amazing value

    No one makes more sense to me about orchids than judywhite, who writes clearly & simply, with lots of easy-to-understand information and explanations. I've had her Taylors Guide to Orchids for years and still use it a lot, so I was glad to find she's done another wonderful & absolutely beautiful book, Bloom-Again Orchids. This is a book for everyone, beginner to advanced, and is a fabulous one for gift-giving. And the writing is so entertaining that I actually laughed out loud a bunch of times.

    The front part of this book gives lots of tips about how orchids grow, so you really "get" orchids. A really good two page spread has her "10 Best tips for Growing Orchids" that you could almost just cut out and paste on the wall behind your plants! Then most of the rest of the book details 50 different kinds of orchids that she's chosen for their relative ease in getting to grow - and, importantly - how to get them to flower again, year after year.

    The photography is really gorgeous, with at least one full-page picture per entry, often more. The layout of each entry is really nice too, with a box with pronunciation, potting needs, light & temperature requirements, plant size, etc, and a checklist with things like "Fragrant", "Big Flowers", etc. There's even a chart at the back to help you decipher the abbreviations on orchid labels, which I've never seen anywhere else.

    This is truly a super book, and I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was.
