There is no doubt that orchids are the most colourful of all houseplants. The range available is scintillating, and you’ll find one to fit whatever colour scheme you favour.

Most recently, fragrant orchids have been getting more attention, and rightly so. Although I’m also partial to a jewel orchid or two, they certainly jazz up a terrarium!
