Cultivated Orchids



The most comprehensive encyclopaedia of orchids that I have seen. Not many photographs and the names are out of date however so many species are included that are not in any other book. The best reference for unusual species. Once you start reading this book you just cannot stop because it is packed with so much information.

Encyclopaedia of Cultivated Orchids

  • by Alex Hawkes
  • 602 pages, hard cover, good condition.
  • $70.00 or $90.00 including postage within Australia
  • The checklists, index and glossary at the back are amazingly comprehensive.
  • Many species covered that you cannot even find online. 
  • Still the bible for many orchid botanists.
  • Rather than giving pages of information about a limited number of species you get a paragraph or two of concise information on thousands of species.
