A com­mon lan­guage

Gardeners' World - - We Love February -

Read­ing Carol Klein’s ar­ti­cle, What’s in a name (De­cem­ber is­sue), re­minded me of a tour around the base of Mount Etna in Si­cily. De­spite the lan­guage bar­rier we found it easy to un­der­stand the de­scrip­tions of the beau­ti­ful and spe­cial flora of the re­gion by us­ing Latin names. As Carol says, it meant we could talk about plants with con­fi­dence. Belinda Miller, Aberdeen­shire
