Book Review: The Passion for Gardening

The Passion for Gardening by Ken Druse is not a must read but a mildly entertaining read. I may be doing it an injustice, following hot on the heals of The Brother Gardeners and Planthropology, but it did not have the appeal of either of those books and I was a little disappointed. At one point rather preachy, and generally rather wordy, I got the feeling "so what" after 30 or so pages. The photographs were good, but not as stunning as those in Planthropology by the same author.
