Canadian Gardening says my new book is “enough to make a grown man blush”
Book review: The Untamed Garden
By Signe Langford
It’s time we had a little talk. You know, the one about the birds and the bees and well, oh gosh, this is awkward—all that sex going on in your garden! Award-winning gardening writer Sonia Day, gets down and quite dirty in this, her seventh book. We don’t want to give it all away—after all, this pretty little book deserves to find its way under many a tree this Christmas—but we will say this much; Day’s life long love affair with plants started when she was 19, witnessing her father’s passion for the elusive, seductive, night-blooming cereus flower. Fast forward to present day Toronto when a rather cheeky squash, endowed with sexy curves, re-ignites Day’s fascination with what goes on between two consenting flowers.
