Default Re: Scientific Nomenclature

As a gardener i find the use of scientific names invaluable, not to be pretentious but because it is soooo much easier, although for different reasons to animals.
There are many creatures with the same common name, but some plants have many many common names.
So actually learning the scientific name is less intellectual than learning all the different common names.
