The Smith & Hawken gardening catalog is the undisputed king. Mailed out to more than 18 million customers, its lavish, four-color spreads hawk everything from outlandishly expensive tools and gardening fashions to "river stones". Here, to skewer this bible of pretentious gardening are Tom Connor and Jim Downey, the "bad boys of parody", and this time they're out to get their hands dirty. Color photos.
