Plants are the source, at least in part, of most of our most basic needs–food, clothing, and shelter–and as gardeners, we know they give us beauty, wonder, livelihood. As gardeners, we also know plants aren’t all good, and in fact some are downright dastardly.
This month on RadioGarden, stories at the intersection of people and plants, I ask a simple question: are plants friend or foe? This month, Wicked Plants author Amy Stewart is back for a conversation about plants as villains with Lau Hodges, curator of the Wicked Plants exhibit at the San Francisco Conservatory of Flowers.
