Understanding the language of any hobby or interest is often the key to enjoying it with fewer frustrations. Garden-pedia is the resource to help you understand the many terms associated with plants and gardens.



The entry style lies comfortably between dictionary and encyclopedia; giving a short definition of a term along with a helpful explanation as to the how or why of it. Many entries also have helpful illustrations and photos for increased clarity.



You will also find special pages that group together strongly related terms - such as the page of Terms Related to Soil - which covers things such as clay and loam, but also tilth and texture.

Grab a copy of this very usable and portable garden aid for yourself or a newbie plant and garden geek – understanding is just a few pages turns away!
