Learn how to grow your own garden full of relaxation from an expert in the field!

From the former garden editor of Sunset Magazine, Johanna Silver, Growing Weed in the Garden brings cannabis out of the dark, into the sunlight. For both the stoned and sober, the new and seasoned gardener, Growing Weed in the Garden is the definitive guide to doing just that.

Johanna is a James Beard Award-winning author who writes mostly about plants and people. She published her first book, The Bold Dry Garden: Lessons from the Ruth Bancroft Garden (Timber Press) in 2016. Her second book, Growing Weed in the Garden: A No-Fuss, Seed-to-Stash Guide to Outdoor Cannabis Cultivation (Abrams) was just published in March 2020!

Johanna is a contributing editor at Better Homes & Gardens, and her work has been featured in Martha Stewart Living, The San Francisco Chronicle, and Eating Well. Previously, Johanna spent ten years at Sunset Magazine, beginning with a shovel in her hands and culminating as head of the garden department.
