Are gardeners really crazed workaholics? Are weeds really plants whose virtues simply haven't been found yet? Is the new rage for "wild plants" merely old indolence hiding behind the shrubbery of political correctness? These are just a few of the topics horticultural humorist Des Kennedy tackles in Crazy About Gardening. In a series of thought-provoking and rib-tickling essays, Kennedy lovingly probes the foibles and follies of North America's favorite pastime. His writing sparkles with satirical wit and, like all good satire, has a higher purpose. An accomplished green thumb and award-winning writer, Kennedy describes his experiences in terms that shape a gateway into the hilarious, lovely, and ultimately profound world of gardens and gardening.
