Botanic Nomenclature for 'Fraidy' Cats
Are you intimated by botanical names? Most of us were at one time. This class will help you get accustomed to the language of horticulture; it is not an in-depth study. We will begin with an overview of classification and then discuss species names and meanings. Knowing these will help you garden in many ways. Trust me, you will become comfortable with the rest of the language. Familiarity with this language is especially important as "common names" are not exact. For instance, one day you might ask for a lotus and be handed several different plants!
