About this book

RHS Botany for Gardeners is more than just a useful reference book on the science of botany and the language of horticulture – it is a practical, hands-on guide that will help gardeners understand how plants grow, how this affects how they perform in the garden and so help them get better results. Illustrated throughout with beautiful botanical prints and simple technical diagrams, RHS Botany for Gardeners provides easy-to-understand explanations of over 3,000 botanical words and terms, and shows how these can be applied to everyday gardening practice.

For easy navigation, RHS Botany for Gardeners is divided into thematic changes – covering everything from Plant Parts to Plant Pests – and further subdivided into useful headings, such as 'Seed Sowing' and 'Pruning'. In addition, feature spreads profile the remarkable individuals who have collected, studied and illustrated the plants that we grow today, and 'Botany in Action' boxes provide instantly accessible practical tips and advice.

Aided by RHS Botany for Gardeners, every gardener – and every garden – will benefit from unlocking the wealth of information that lies within the intriguing world of botanical science.
