I’m often asked why is Latin used so frequently in gardening. The answer is simple – horticulturalists and botanists use Latin words for the genus or species of plants as they are descriptive and explain their characteristics. Latin also helps to avoid any confusion between common names, which can differ from country to country.

So, how well do you know your horticultural Latin? Take my quiz to test your knowledge now! Good luck.
