RHS Latin for Gardeners

More Than 1,500 Essential Plant Names and the Secrets They Contain

Aided by this book the gardener can now answer the question "What´s in a name?" and they and their garden will benefirt from understanding the wealth of information that has hitherto lain hidden within the myserious world of Latin names.´ - Financial Times Online

RHS Latin for Gardeners is an informative, entertaining and beautifully illustrated unravelling of the mysteries of botanical Latin. Over 3,000 Latin names are listed alphabetically, showing how plant names can reveal where a plant originally comes from (and thus its preferred growing conditions), along with such properties as its shape, form, colour, taste, and smell. Each name is clearly defined and accompanied by a pronunciation guide, and the pages are filled with attractive botanical illustrations.

Fascinating feature spreads retell the adventures of important plant hunters such as Sir Joseph Banks and Alexander von Humboldt, and explain how their discoveries affect the way our gardens look today. Individual plants are also profiled throughout, showing how their names can illuminate their hidden histories.

Aided by this book, every gardener, and their garden, will benefit from uncovering the wealth of information that lies within the remarkable world of Latin binomials. A little Latin can do a lot of good - apply the lore of Latin to your own garden!

Contents includes...

The A-Z Listings of Latin Plant Names
