This book on the sexuality of plants and the influence this has on the gardener is both playful and serious! At first, the author takes the subject from the very start: the sexuality of plants being at the origin of everything. He then takes us for a stroll through the vegetable garden as a pretext to explain the mechanisms of plant reproduction and to evoke various subjects: plants with evocative names or shapes, “forbidden” plants in monasteries, magic potions made from plants, sadomasochistic plants.
