The book has some interesting details about the Latin terms in gardening. The articles on plantsmen are intriguing.

I was disappointed that only descriptive terms are included, not plant names themselves. For example, Papaver rhoeas is illustrated on page 177. The term, rhoeas, is defined as ancient Greek, name for Papaver rhoeas. Nothing more. The Latin term, Papaver, is not defined.

Overall, it isn't the content expected based on the title and subtitle.

I bought this for a woman who loves nature, enjoys gardening and has a ridiculous grasp of Latin etymology for plants, animal species..."SAT words" in general. Obviously this tome was right up her alley. I believe many a curious plant lover would find this beautifully cloth-bound reference book a joy to own. That being said, as a book lover (not a Latin or plant person per se), I was disappointed that there weren't more illustrations or even botany based art work from Flemish masters to complement the richness of nomenclature being explored. My critiques essentially wishes that a different book had been written so it could be dismissed as unfair. Still, when describing the world of flowers with an enraptured audience, why so stingy with visual lushness?

There were many aspects of the book that I really liiked: The illustrations were lovely, the text was well written and interesting, with a variety of different topics from biograhical info to the meaning of specific qualities of plants.
The book was lovelhy to look at, but very difficult to read.
The paper was beige-grey, the color of an old botanical print and the type was small and not dark enouiogh to stand out aganist the dark background color.
Each word being defined was printed in a green-grey type, then the pronumciation spelled out phonetically (a good thing) but then the defination was printed in script the size of the tlelephone booK!

I have been an avid hobby gardener for a few years now but can never remember the names of plants. I decided that it might be fun to learn the latin names but felt intimidated because I have a terrible memory for names. This book is excellent. I love it. It not only tells you the latin names but explains the origin of the genus or species name. This makes it easier for me to remember because often the names are related to a characteristic, color or country of origin of the plant. The drawings are beautiful as well and the overall look and feel of the book makes me feel like I'm referencing an old text. Great addition to my gardening book library.

I've always gardened as a hobby. But, after being involved in an unfortunate accident that left me disabled and unemployed, gardening has become not only a stress-reliever and a form of low-impact physical therapy, but also a potential avenue of future self-employment. Having a deeper knowledge of the plants I grow will definitely help with my success and integrity in this field. Latin for Gardeners is a GREAT resource to understanding the culture of various plants, the origins of their descriptive names, and often their significance in history, botany, religion, and medicine. This is a "must-have" for professional gardeners, university botany majors, and even the curious home gardener. Get your hands on this book...ASAP!!!

Helpful in differentiating Latin for my studies in horticulture. However, the print is quite small but, for the amount of information and the smaller size of the book it is warranted. There are pictures/drawings in color and every so many pages there is a biography of a contributer to plant name and discovery and the like.

gave this as a gift to my daughter who is a professional gardener and she's getting miles out of it :-)
I hadn't expected such nice artwork - what a bonus! The dictionary is easy to use and includes pronunciations, origins of words, stories of botanists and more. This is going to be used a lot.
