Are gardeners crazed workaholics? Are weeds really plants whose virtues simply haven't been found yet? Is the new rage for "wild gardens" merely old indolence hiding behind the shrubbery of political correctness? These are just a few of the topics that horticultural humourist Des Kennedy tackles in Crazy About Gardening, a book first published almost twenty years ago and now reprinted in a series of thought-provoking and rib-tickling essays that lovingly probes the foibles and follies on North America's favourite pastime.
