From the author:

What Canadian Garden Words is all about is summed up in my subtitle: The origin of flower, tree, and plant names, both wild and domestic, entertainingly derived from their sources in the ancient tongues together with fancy botanical names and why you shall never again be afraid to use them! I am a word-nut and an amateur gardener. While blizzards bluster outside my window, the only thing I can plough through are seed catalogues, like many a Canuck green thumb. Dreaming of spring's surge, of peated loam awaiting seed, of rock-garden nooks for new alpines, I also dawdle over garden volumes that explain how to grow plants. But I could never find a book that offered the juicy lore associated with plant names. Because no particular compilation filled Bill's bill, I made my own. Of course, I use the word garden freely. After all, this book includes notes about the names of some Canadian wild flowers and many native trees. But the verdant fields of our dominion, indeed of our earth, are one vast garden. It behooves us to protect it. A step toward that goal is to know better the charm and surprise of its nomenclature.
