Whether you have already taken Everything About Orchids, or are just interested in learning more about orchids and Longwood’s collection, this course is the perfect next step. Since 1922, orchids have been one of Longwood’s premier plant collections—and remain a cornerstone of the Gardens today. Learn more about Longwood’s outstanding collection and how to grow and enjoy orchids in your own landscape.
This course provides a booklet of informative plant fact sheets for many of the species featured in Everything About Orchids, including 15 common, advanced, and specialty orchids, which you can download and print. The fact sheets highlight the culture and care of popular orchids and include gorgeous images.
