A little book of Latin for gardeners
A little book of Latin for gardeners
Parker, Peter, 1954-2018
Books
Evolved over many centuries and often thought to belong to the rarefied world of scholars and scientists, this invented language is in fact a very useful tool for everyday gardening. It allows us to find our way around nurseries; it sorts out confusions when two plants have the same English name and it gives us all kinds of information about how big or small a plant will grow, what shape or colour it will develop, and what habitat it prefers. In his lively survey, Parker argues that Botanical Latin is not merely useful, but fun.
