This little book is my Bible for learning Botanical Latin. It not only explains the meaning of Genus but also Species name too. Great help!

So far as it goes, this is a useful book, but there are very many names that are not in it. It's worth having but it is not comprehensive.

Amazing book, a real necessity for every gardener and invaluable for all RHS students! Only gripe would be is it 100% up to date...?

It's just like a dictionary....but for flowers, foliage and plants! So not a book you can sit and read but a good reference book.

I'm studying for an RHS qualification and this little book has been invaluable. I would recommend this to anybody as a reference tool

Excellent resource for the meaning of botanical plant names. (It's been a number of yours since I had Latin in high school.) As I live in the USA, some of the naming is different, but there is nothing published in the US to come close

Difficult to find more common plants as too many rare and obscure plants make sifting through small printed pages hard work.

I've embarked on a Garden Design course and this book is a must have. Very straightforward and full of useful information.
