Practical Latin for Gardeners is a timely and useful guide to plant names based on the bestselling Latin for Gardeners. It contains 1,500 of the most useful and widespread Latin names, organised into thematic chapters including Colour, Plant Form and Habitat. 'Behind the Name' boxes further increase the book's practical value, and botanical watercolours ensure that it is beautiful as well as functional. Each chapter is divided into smaller groups, (large plants and small plants), allowing gardeners to make new connections and discoveries in a way standard alphabetical lists simply don't permit. The binomial (two name) system of nomenclature was developed by Swedish naturalist, Carl Linnaeus in the mid 1700s.
