Hi Everyone, Thank you so much for this website. So many of my gardening questions have been answered by reading this Q&A section. I owe all of you so much……you’ve given me a gorgeous garden so far this year.
I have been so intrigued by the use of botanical latin names for the different kind of plants shown on this site. Who knew that such common favorites had even more exotic names using botantical latin? Can anyone give me an easy way to take my garden plants and find their botanical latin names? Is there a great reference book, a website or a person for hire that can build a bridge from common names to latin names? I will be honest…in some cases I don’t even know some of my plants common names so I will need to start at square one in some cases. I would love to be able to do this reference work, but am grappling with gettting my arms around how to start.
Any suggestions? Again, I turn it over to the "garden gods" of A Way To Garden. Take care everyone!
