Gardening: Knowledge of trees can sprout growth opportunities
from The Post and Courier
Would you like to identity plants? Maybe you want to be more knowledgeable in the garden or just drive your spouse nuts by pointing at random trees spouting out names. At some point you won’t know a specimen and find yourself stopping to observe the stems, buds and foliage. You step back to look at the form, break a leaf to see how it smells. And then, sometimes, from somewhere deep and buried, a name floats to the surface and not just any name. It’s a Latin name.
