About the author (1998)

Meg Descamp lives in Portland, Oregon. After moving to a new home with a less than perfect yard, the reticent Descamp forced herself to learn the basics of gardening. Her conversion from non-gardener to green thumb resulted in the book, Slug Tossing and Other Adventures of a Reluctant Gardener (1998), a humorous but informative and popular book about the education of a novice gardener.
