Latin for Gardeners

Tuesday, October 10, 2017
6:30pm – 8:30pm

Tolland County Agricultural Center

The scientific names for plants intimidate many gardeners, but avoiding them can result in purchasing the wrong plant or misidentifying plant problems. In this class we’ll review the history of botanical nomenclature in the Western world: why names change and why we gardeners should make the effort to use them. It’s not all Greek, or Latin, and the knowledge can expand your gardening expertise.
