Ever wonder what a phrase such as “dentate margin” means? Improve your plant identification skills through a study of leaves, stems, flowers, and fruits. Look in detail at the methods (morphology) and terminology (nomenclature) used to describe plants throughout the seasons. You will also gain an understanding of the botanical system of plant names and how the plant kingdom is organized. This is important “groundwork” for anyone hoping to become a better gardener.
