From the publisher of the bestselling RHS Latin for Gardeners, RHS Botany for Gardeners is an accessible, informative and beautifully illustrated guide to the mysteries of botanical terms and the science of plants.
About the Author
Since being inspired by some of the world's leading botanists whilst studying Plant Science at the University of Edinburgh, Simon Maughan has spent the last twenty-five years furthering his knowledge and developing a love of practical gardening and plants. He was employed in 1995 to work on the RHS A-Z of Garden Plants and to date has worked on many dozens of gardening books covering all aspects of the subject from species rhododendrons to garden design, and everything in between. He has worked as an editor and publisher for the RHS for twelve years, and this is the first opportunity he has had to work on a book on botany.

I am currently studying the Level 2 RHS Diploma in the Principles and Practices of Horticulture and I can honestly say that out of all of my study books - 'RHS Botany for Gardeners' has helped me with my learning and general know-how of horticulture TREMENDOUSLY! It is presented beautifully with clear diagrams and pictures of flowers (Latin and English names provided). The content and text is also very clear and concise making plant biology topics much more easier to digest. It's a great size, not too big, which is really helpful for reading 'on the go' and the price is incredibly fair considering how many topics this book covers. I have been recommending this book to all of my class mates and I'd say that even if you aren't studying for a formal qualification in Hort - I would highly recommend it for any enthusiastic gardener who is keen on brushing up their plant knowledge/practical skills too!

I love this book. I've been a gardener for many years and have always been fascinated by the way plants grow from seeds and produce flowers and fruit.Read more
Interesting read if you want to delve deeper into the science in soil/ plant growth.
If you are a general gardener and want some general advice about how to grow plants or want to know more species, maybe this is not the book you should get.Read more
