New to botanical terms, I'm so glad that this book has a good glossary! It is an invaluable resource, and I don't think I've found any plant (yet!) that isn't in this book!

Great reference

From what I understand, this book is the standard. And I don't need an excuse to buy another book. This one was very inexpensive from the seller, and came in excellent condition; better than used books I've bought in old bookstores.

Interesting info in the book, concise, and I would have liked a little more info in some areas. It's unlikely someone is going to run across this book "browsing" in the plant book section. If you're here you're probably know what you're looking for already.

It's a dry read, but it's a big book. If nothing else, my kids can use it as a booster seat at the dinner table.

Hortus Third isn't perfect. I wish it had more drawings and I wish it included more non-cultivated plants.
That said, Hortus Third is probably the most important garden/botany reference book I own. I am a professional garden writer & speaker (author of Allergy-Free Gardening) and Hortus is one book I turn to almost daily. I now and then do find some things in it that I don't completely agree with, but by and large it is very accurate.
Hortus is an expensive book, and not really one for the casual gardener, but for those whose interest is deep, it is worth the money--and then some.
My own copy of Hortus Third is pretty well dog-eared by now from so much use. I have given it only 4 stars as a rating, and that is because I, like many, wish it included more natives, but still, there is no other book quite like it and it is a very useful, important reference that I simply could not do without.

As a landscape architect for the Walt Disney Company for over 30 years this book has been in my personal library since the late 70's. It is the absolute go-to reference when identifying and categorizing plants. Prior to acquiring Hortus Third, I carried around a worn out copy of Hortus Second I was given while in college. If you have a serious interest in plants this book should be in your library.

The bible of Horticulture to be sure. No more begging hardware store managers to sell their last years edition of Orthos' big book free to them, but a 300.00 book.as stickered. Folks new to profession, take note. Big Ortho book at end of season, late fall, early winter. Keep eye on book to be sure to own. Bundled, makes one see Deans list. I did.

Thank you for the item.
Great resource. Must have for anyone interested in garden curatorial work. Loaded with reference information for a vast amount of genera. No other "current" book I have found lives up to the vastness of this volume.
