Practical Latin for Gardeners

More than 1,500 Essential Plant Names and the Secrets they Contain
James Armitage


Practical Latin for Gardeners is a timely and useful guide to plant names. It contains 1,500 of the most useful and widespread Latin names, organised into thematic chapters including Colour, Plant Form and Habitat.

Each chapter is divided into smaller groups, such as large plants and small plants, allowing gardeners to make new connections and discoveries in a way standard alphabetical lists simply don't permit. 'Behind the Name' boxes further increase the book's practical value, and botanical watercolours ensure that it is beautiful as well as functional.
