The Drunken Botanist

Presented by Amy Stewart

Who knew that horticulture was such an intoxicating subject? In her follow-up to the New York Times bestsellers Wicked Bugs and Wicked Plants, Amy Stewart explores the odd, unusual, and surprisingly common plants that have produced the world’s greatest spirits. “The Drunken Botanist” uncovers the enlightening botanical history and the fascinating science and chemistry of plants, flowers, trees, fruits, and even a few fungi.

Amy Stewart is the award-winning author of six books on the perils and pleasures of the natural world, including three New York Times bestsellers. She is the co-founder of the popular blog GardenRant and a contributing editor at Fine Gardening magazine.
