Seen through the eyes of the family, "Orchids – One Family’s Passion" by Wilma Rittershausen, chronicles the modest start and slow rise of Burnham Nurseries through the decades, to the world respected position it holds today. It recalls a bygone age, and reflects upon the people and nurseries which are now long gone. The book details the many changes concerning the importation and regulation of species, and laments the loss of the old style private collections. It reflects upon the use of now banned pesticides, early hybrids, classic plants which tell their own tales, and other important historical changes, up to the present day. A really interesting read even if you are not an orchid enthusiast! Paperback 170 pages
