Best Plant-Based Brawl

Idaho Botanical Garden annual plant sale

Editors' Picks

Having a green thumb doesn't mean you're beyond giving someone a black eye--especially when an heirloom tomato plant is at stake. While it might not come to actual blows, there are definitely some very pointed looks, race walking, swooping in and battle strategies that come into play at the annual fundraiser. Garden lovers take their botanical prizes seriously and are willing to do whatever it takes to make sure they come home with all the herbs, veggies and decorative plants they can haul. Our advice: If you're not willing to do a flying dive for a pepper plant, stay out of the way. 2355 Old Penitentiary Road, Boise, 208-343-8649,
