Now the most popular flowering plant in the United Kingdom, the range of orchids available has increased dramatically; they make ideal gifts either for yourself or that special person, they flower for months and are far easier to look after than people realise.

Orchids often come in clear pots, which allows light to reach the roots, as it would in the wild. If choosing a pot cover for your orchid, ensure it is slightly larger than for other plants to allow light to still reach the roots. Orchids are easy to re-pot when they grow too large for their pot, instructions are in the video below.
