Gardener's Latin leads us down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside .

Gardener's Latin leads us down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside here and there along the way for little-known horticultural facts and fables and the wisdom of. gardeners from Virgil to Vita Sackville-West. Finding your way in the jungles of botanical Latin can teach you a great deal about the plants themselves. Take baby’s breath, a poetic name that beautifully describes the plant’s airy cloud of tiny white blossoms. Bill Neal’s margin notes offer some of the charming lore and literary associations that the names have acquired down through the centuries. The species names as defined are no less charming.

Rudimentary botanical science began with empirically-based plant lore . His second book Causes of Plants covers plant growth and reproduction (akin to modern physiology).

Rudimentary botanical science began with empirically-based plant lore passed from generation to generation in the oral traditions of paleolithic hunter-gatherers. Since the origin of botanical science there has been a progressive increase in the scope of the subject as technology has opened up new techniques and areas of study. Like Aristotle he grouped plants into "trees", "undershrubs", "shrubs" and "herbs" but he also made several other important botanical distinctions and observations.

For the vast number of horticulturalists, gardeners, and plant lovers interested in the origin and derivation of plant names, this book will be an invaluable reference. In numerous instances he offers interesting historical information or anecdotes about plants and their introduction to gardens. Archibald William Smith.

Author Bill Neal has weeded through the Latin words that describe and distinguish plants and flowers and compiled a single volume of select definitions and gardening lore. Narcissus bulbocodium or Narcissus cyclamineus? Isabellinus, iadinus, ianthinus? Basilaris or basilicus? Today's gardeners encounter Latin terms like these whenever they enter garden centres or pick up mail-order catalogues. They must still, of course, decide whether dahlias or peonies will best complete that floral border. But new questions in an increasingly technical vocabulary are sprouting up among perennial concerns and demanding attention from devoted gardeners. As Latin terms appear with increasing frequency in garden centres and on the pages of gardening catalogues, we need such brief, clear definitions for the finite number of Latin terms that combine to form the names of a seemingly infinite number of plant species. Equally welcome are the little-known horticultural facts and fables which fill the broad margins of every page. "Gardener's Latin" is a book for the gardener who needs to know that a plant with isabellinus (tawing yellow) on its nursery tag might not belong in a carefully planned ianthinus (violet-blue) border. Or that the ostensibly similar basilaris and basilicus mean 'base' and 'royal', respectively. Bill Neal leads us down the path from abbreviatus to zonatus, turning aside here and there along the way for glimpses at gardens and gardeners from Virgil to Vita Sackville-West, from Gertrude Jekyll to Gertrude Stein. Patches of garden lore and literature are scattered throughout the beds of definition: why Narcissus cyclamineus is a horticultural joke; why basil is the herb of dread and suspicion; why Cleopatra's asp arrives in a basket of figs whenever "Antony and Cleopatra" is performed. Whether it's dahlias or peonies that will best complete a garden, "Gardener's Latin" is the book to complete any gardener's bookshelf.

Very essential and tiny lexicon of botanical Latin, written with enthusiam. However, it arrived a bit on delay.

Cashoutmaster
Love the way this book is organized. I am trying to learn botanical names of all things in my garden. This is a great help!

Scream_I LOVE YOU
This is such a cute little book! It is very artistically designed and covers a good portion of the Latin names most commonly used by gardeners. In addition to the definitions, there are interesting facts and stories. This is NOT your boring dictionary!

For lovers of plants, language, and beautiful books, this is a perfect book. The translation of botanical latin is helpful to anyone interested in the origin of plant names. The sketches, marginal notes and quotations, layout and size of the book make it a pleasure to use. The task of memorizing hundreds of plant names, which is my burden as a horticulture student, is enjoyable because I have this little book as my interpreter and companion. I've convinced all of my gardening friends to buy this book.

Chinon
This is a cute little book with interesting asides about selected plants. As fun as it is it lacks straight forward readability. It is not the best reference book because of this problem. If you are more into the reference mode then 'Stern's Book of Plant Names' is going to make you happier. If you just want a bathroom read that offers an engaging insight into a plant that you may never have considered looking up then this is for you.

Jugore
Awesome! I've already used it many times. Wish it had even more Latin terms in it!

Buriwield
I was so eager to get this book! Finally my high school Latin might pay off! I wanted it to truly be a useful reference guide. But so far, after trying to find a dozen terms from plants in my own garden, I came up 0 for 12.

And the lookup can be annoying because the publisher made an artistic decision to leave the right edge of the book untrimmed so the pages are all a little different width. Because of this, it's not really possible to fan the pages one at a time - they flop 20 pages as a time. So to locate a term, you must turn each page.

Explains the orgin and meaning of the latin words (regards plants), in most cases describes the look /structure of the plant. Remembering plant names, is not so bad now after reading this book.
