Whether your garden is a windowsill, a basement, a greenhouse, or a plot of land, "Home Orchid Growing" is the only reference book you'll ever need to cultivate one of natures most varied and fascinating plants. In the past forty years, it has become the best-known and most authoritative work in its field.

There is a small area marked by a biro on the front end paper, but otherwise the pages are clean with a sound binding. The book does smell a little musty.
