Reviews

"For those who want a better understanding of plant taxonomy, Latin for Gardeners, by Lorraine Harrison, is a treasure."--Dominique Browning "New York Times "
"Latin for Gardeners is useful, surprising, and beautiful--an accessible dictionary for everyone who puzzles over botanical identifications, an opportunity to get better acquainted with the extraordinary discoverers and namers of so many of our favorite plants, and a treat for all who enjoy the art and lore of the garden."
--Jane S. Smith, author of The Garden of Invention
"Comprehensive and beautifully illustrated."--Martha Stewart Living
"I have several books dedicated to Latin plant names but none fall into the category of Lorraine Harrison's book which is not only informative but entertaining and beautifully illustrated. This is no dull list of Latin plant names--it is a book which begs to be picked up and looked at."--The Reckless Gardener
