Privacy Policy and About Us

Grahame and Margaret Muller are the owners/proprietors of Orchidaceous Books. Orchidaceous Books is a specialist supplier of fine orchid literature from around the world. We stock an extensive range of

  • orchid books New and Pre-owned
  • orchid CD ROMs
  • companion plant books
  • orchid magazines
  • orchid cards and prints
  • some orchid craft

we also offer a service where we can endeavour to locate specific titles for our customers. Orchidaceous Books is operated as a Mail Order / Internet business and do not have a shop front. We spend time “on the road” travelling to and from orchid shows and functions where we display and sell our books. Our attendance at such venues is important to us, as this is where we meet “face to face” with our customers. While we have the ability to receive emails while away from home, there may be small delays in dispatching orders during these times.
