It’s Time To Learn Some Botanical Latin (And Why), An Interview With Ross Bayton Via A Way To Garden

I’M GRATEFUL that when I began gardening, I fell in with a bunch of plant nerds who spoke not in common names but in botanical Latin, and turned me on to oddball mail-order nurseries whose entire lists were likewise written that way. Necessity was therefore the mother of invention.

I absorbed at least a rudimentary command of the official language of plants, and my only regret is that I didn’t learn even more. Now, thanks to the fun I’ve been having dipping over and again into the new book called “The Gardener’s Botanical: An Encyclopedia of Latin Plant Names,” I’m further sharpening my skills, because botanical Latin opens up a world for gardeners willing to try learning some of it.

What can a gardener learn from studying botanical Latin? Ross Bayton, a former editor of the BBC’s “Gardeners World Magazine” created the “The Gardener’s Botanical,” and when we spoke recently, he answered that question and more. (Photo of Ross, below, from the Heronswood garden website. Ross recently became assistant director at Heronswood, the public garden near Kingston, Washington.)

The 6 Magnificent California Gardens Inspiring Us Right Now via Veranda

There are few things we love to daydream about more than a beautiful garden and the next one our list to visit, once we are able to travel. From the peaceful public gardens of Japan to the perfectly manicured gardens of the world’s royals that we have to see, there’s not an area of the world whose gardens we are not interested in seeing. California, whose landscape varies from beaches and deserts to mountains, offers a variety of gardens no matter which part of the state you visit. Here are six of the Golden State’s gardens that are at the top of our list.

AUTHOR’S INTRODUCTION.

It is obvious that a subject so boundless as School Gardening cannot be minutely dealt with in a short work like this. The Author hopes, therefore, that the few remarks on the various phases of the subject will be of practical help to others who may encounter the same difficulties as he had had to contend with.

In order to obtain the best educational results, a scheme of rural science, including gardening, poultry-keeping, beekeeping, and carpentry, should be taken. These subjects so interlock and depend one upon another that to take any one of them separately seems a waste of opportunity. The gardener must have some knowledge of rough carpentry. The keeping of fowls uses up many waste products of the garden, and in return supplies valuable manure ; whilst no one will dispute that beekeeping is a remunerative hobby for the poorest cottager to indulge in.

However, to keep to the title, these notes must be confined to the purely horticultural side of the question.
