9780007258901: Red Undies and Dutchman?s Trousers: Naughty plants for all occasions

"Amorphophallus: As a good whoretoculturalist, I think the more phallus the merrier with regard to this very generously endowed genus of tuberous perennials, grown for their large, dramatic spathes. They only produce tiny flowers, but then nobody's perfect."

In this hilarious approach to the world of gardening, 'whoretoculturalist' Sacha Langton-Gilks exposes the hidden meanings behind plant nomenclature, with a nod (and a wink) to all things naughty in the garden.

Discover the right conditions to attain momentous results from your often neglected Clitoria. Learn the self seeding abilities of your Sisyrinchium (E.K. Balls). If you seek the perfect tool for retribution, refer to 'Plants to give People you Hate' and bestow a gift of Mother-in-Law's Tongue (Sanseviera trifasciata) on your worst enemy.

Cleverly illustrated and packed with over the top planting tips, this book is set to become the rollicking best friend to every seasoned gardener.

• Naughty Plants
• The Gay Boys' Border
• The WAG's Border
• The Religious Border
• The Art Lover's border

Review:

Amateur Gardening, 19th January ‘[this] gardening book has banished political correctness to the compost heap and dared to break the ultimate horticultural taboo - by focusing on saucy plant names!’

Dorset magazine, January 2008 ‘If this isn't the funniest gardening book ever written, then I'll eat my gardening gloves. Great fun.’

From the Author:

If you would like to see me in my own savagely wild garden please go to YouTube and type in 'Red Undies and Dutchman's Trousers'.
