Something wicked this way grows

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’m a big fan of Amy Stewart, who blogs at Dirt and Garden Rant, and who writes great books about the wild, wonderful world of plants. So, it should come as no surprise that I was delighted to learn that her next book, Wicked Plants: A Book of Botanical Atrocities, will be coming out this spring from Algonquin Books.

Amy’s got a trailer for the book (yes, like a movie trailer, only possibly more educational) up at her site. I encourage you to check it out and see what’s in store (literally) in May!

    Quirky antidote for anyone who thinks female gardeners are always wafting around in flowered dresses and sun hats. I can’t believe you got to see her at Prairie Lights–one of the great bookstores!

    OK — I’m totally stoked about the book (and I have to hand it to you for the great subject line for your blog post too).

    But Prairie Lights, indeed … great book store!

    Daffodilplanter, not only did I get to see her at Prairie Lights, my ex and I got to take her out to dinner afterwards and talk to her about writing, gardening and getting funding for both! It was a real highlight of my time in Iowa.

    Foodhappens, thank you thank you…some days the headline comes hard, other days, it comes easy. As for the book, maybe we’ll have to have a little Inadvertent Gardener Book Club session about it when it comes out or something…hmm…

    Foodhappens is right, brilliant headline that really set up the video too. Lucky you to have dinner with Amy Stewart!
