Traveling Gardener 4 Stars
I found this book to be a very accessible botanical glossary reference. The pictures alone are stunning, but coupled with clear, "unstuffy" explanations, it brings a curious gardener one step closer to answering questions about why a plant might look (or act) the way it does, or is named the way it is; or merely confirms that what you might have considered abnormal growth is perfectly natural. It's not just for New Zealand plants, although that's part of the title -- the plants may be from New Zealand, but the terms are applicable anywhere.
Nice garden reference book made for the iPad by Water jewel 5 Stars
I'm an avid gardener from the other side of the world - on the northeast coast of the US.
This fascinating book is an in-depth guide to the botanical language used by gardeners throughout the world. It also reveals the huge variety of very different plants that can be found in New Zealand. Consider the Illustrated Glossary to be a travel guide and a plant geek's bible all rolled into one!
