This fully illustrated guide to the cultivation of orchids in the Mediterranean climate of San Francisco's Bay Area features over 250 images and lists hundreds of orchid species and hybrids that can be grown in the various and rather disparate microclimates around the bay.The San Francisco Bay Area's temperate climate and highly varied terrain have given rise to numerous microclimates that favor the cultivation of literally thousands of different orchid species and hybrids. The mild weather, ideal for year-round gardening, means that many of these plants can thrive outdoors provided certain conditions are met. This richly illustrated book is tailored specifically to the needs of the San Francisco Bay Area orchid grower, offering detailed orchid culture information along with recommendations of orchids to grow indoors, in cool to warm-intermediate greenhouses or outdoors, with microclimate-specific suggestions for those choosing to grow outdoors. Some of the top orchid growers in the region have even shared their secrets of success for A Bay Area Guide to Orchids and Their Culture, while local societies and numerous sources of orchids and orchid supplies are provided to help you to find the very best plants for your area. The expertise of the author and the regional growers applies just as well to other growers in Mediterranean climes, or whose interests lie with predominantly cool to intermediate growing orchids.
