Over from England, where he has authored a number of Royal Horticultural Society titles, is horticulturalist Ross Bayton with his newest, The Gardener's Botanical: An Encyclopedia of Latin Plant Names - with More than 5,000 Entries (Princeton University Press). This should be a fun, instructive evening, pairing together gardening plants with their not-so-tame Latin names. Beautiful illustrations make it even more of a pleasure.
"[A] veritable treasure trove of information from the very first page to the final exquisite illustration." —David Gascoigne.
