What kind of scents that plants offer up please you…or don’t? How do you even describe what things in the garden smell like? I spoke with Ken Druse, author of the new book “The Scentual Garden,” about his fascination with fragrant plants.
There are a lot of good things I could say about having known Ken for many years, and one of them is that we’ve had each other to talk to along the way while we’ve been writing each new book, someone to ruminate with and refine ideas with time and again. So when Ken started telling me more than a year ago about what is now his latest and his 20th book, about fragrance, I was fascinated because frankly it’s not something I know a lot about. Now, thanks to Ken and “The Scentual Garden,” I do.
We’ll have a book giveaway with the transcript of the show on awaytogarden.com
