Bizarre Botanicals ~ I won!

Here's a good reason to get a Twitter account if you don't have one already:  You might win something!  This week I won an advance copy of Bizarre Botanicals by Larry Mellichamp and Paula Gross from Timber Press!

I'm not sure if Red Spiral Ginger (Costus barbatus) is included, but it is the sort of thing you will learn how to grow at home from this book.  Lots of uncommon and fascinating plants are profiled.

Bizarre Botanicals is scheduled for release around Halloween so I will let you know more about it before then.  I got a sneak peek of it at UNCC last night, and I think we will love it!

Follow Timber Press on Twitter.  And aCLTgarden, too.
