Book Description:

From the publisher of the bestselling RHS Latin for Gardeners, RHS Botany for Gardeners is an accessible, informative and beautifully illustrated guide to the mysteries of botanical terms and the science of plants.

About the Author:

Since being inspired by some of the world's leading botanists whilst studying Plant Science at the University of Edinburgh, Simon Maughan has spent the last twenty-five years furthering his knowledge and developing a love of practical gardening and plants. He was employed in 1995 to work on the RHS A-Z of Garden Plants and to date has worked on many dozens of gardening books covering all aspects of the subject from species rhododendrons to garden design, and everything in between. He has worked as an editor and publisher for the RHS for twelve years, and this is the first opportunity he has had to work on a book on botany.
