Cumbrella posted a topic in Chill SpaceI have just started my cert II in horticulture and would love to hear other peoples suggestions for their must have books and recommendations for any other books, sites, learning tools etc that you found useful. So far I have found the internet to be very unreliable in terms of correct information so am hoping for some more reliable resources. So far I have purchased * Weeds of Southern Qld 3rd Edition - The Weed Society of Qld publication * Plant Protection 1,2,3&4 3rd edition - Author: Kerruish & Unger I have also been looking at "A gardeners Latin - The language of plants explained" by Richard Bird and similar books. Any one else read this or similar books and found it useful either immediately or further into their pursuit of knowledge. Just like to add a quick thanks to Torsten & the team at SAB for labeling scientific names on the plants I have ordered over the years and also the members here for using the scientific names. This has helped familiarize myself with a few Genus and many Species names which has contributed greatly to the foundation of my learning and made the latin part not so overwhelming all of a sudden. I'm starting to hear the same words over and over and once I get my head around the plant anatomy I can really see stuff flowing. Anyways back on topic..what ya got for me
