RHS Practical Latin for Gardeners : More than 1,500 Essential Plant Names and the Secrets They Contain, Paperback / softback Book

RHS Practical Latin for Gardeners : More than 1,500 Essential Plant Names and the Secrets They Contain Paperback / softback

Description

RHS Practical Latin for Gardeners is a unique guide to plant binomials based on the bestselling RHS Latin for Gardeners.

It contains 1,500 of the most useful and most widespread Latin names, organized into thematic chapters including Colour, Size, Form and Habitat.

Each chapter is further subdivided into smaller groups, such as large plants and small plants.

This allows gardeners to make new connections and discoveries in a way standard alphabetical lists don't permit. 'Behind the Name' feature boxes further increase the book's practical value, and a wide range of botanical watercolours ensure that it is beautiful as well as functional.

This book includes a definition and pronunciation guide for each word, as well as a 16-page alphabetical index, so that it can still be used as a conventional dictionary of Latin names. And its handy, pocket-sized format makes it the perfect gift.
