Learn a Little Latin - Botanical Nomenclature Presentation at Elm Bank

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

A slightly serious, slightly irreverent look at the form of Latin used in botanical nomenclature.

Cheryl Monroe will discuss the wacky ways some plants get their names and how to write them correctly, explore the perils of pronunciation, and learn a few handy dandy words that will help you decipher your garden, and bring out your latent Linnaeus.

This presentation is hosted by the New England Unit of the Herb Society of America, and is open to Mass Hort members and guests as space allows.
