wicked-plants-blogDon’t miss out on your chance to win this signed copy of the bestseller“Wicked Plants” by Amy Stewart.

Just send in your digital pix of the odd-ball produce you’ve either grown or found at a farmer’s market. Click here for complete details.

The winning entry, selected by an impartial judge, receives this wonderful addition to any gardener’s library. In fact, I hate to give this book away!

“Wicked Plants” is a fascinating walk through the dark garden of deadly, illegal, painful and destructive plants. What fun Amy must have had researching and writing it.

Amy writes, “I confess that I am enchanted by the plant kingdom’s criminal element. I love a good villain, whether its an enormous specimen of Euphorbia tirucalli…or Datura inoxia…”

Amy explains that dangerous plants don’t just lurk in remote jungles, but they can be found in backyards, too.

The etchings by Briony Morrow-Cribbs and drawings by Jonathon Rosen add the perfect touch to create the book’s creepy ambiance. I love that she added a list of Poison Gardens in the appendix.

Read an excerpt and find the link to poisonous plant databases on the Wicked Plants website.

Remember to send your weird veggie of funny fruit digital images to jodi@WesternGardeners.com by Friday at the latest.
