Nearly everyone I know loves Orchids. But often we are too initimdated to try to grow them. In our area Longwood Gardens has a wonderful display of Orchids. Another blogger I follow Roy Kelley from Maryland posted this news that Longwood Gardens is offering a free online course on Orchids. Study at your own pace, but sign up soon and maybe you can have some orchids ready for the summer.

Good share. I know many folks are terrified of killing orchids. Yet, I hear they are actually pretty easy. This course should help more people learn exactly what they need to do to have orchids.

Shahar Hillel I thought so as well.

Gabe Sanders his photos attest to that and I think we all like them, they just frighten us but they are not so hard.
