Are gophers gobbling up your garden? Pests preying on your prized peonies? Not happy with your hyacinths? Don't despair! Your plants and garden can be restored to perfect health with this handy reference guide. Black-and-white illustrations accompany the alphabetical listings of plants and their assortment of plagues. You'll find advice about how to prevent problems before they become serious, recipes for natural and organic treatments to ward off insects and other creatures, and what type of plants are best suited to your climate and soil conditions. The chapter on gardening basics, with recipes for different types of organic fertilizers and quicker composts as well as tips on how and where to place particular flowers, will help a newcomer get started. Plant this book in the garage, right next to the rake, hoe, and spade, and use it as a basic tool for getting your garden in great shape.From Library Journal:
Annuals, perennials, bulbs, and roses are covered in the latest offering on gardening from Rodale, which includes Rodale's Garden Problem Solver (LJ 6/1/88) and Rodale's Landscape Problem Solver (LJ 6/15/89). This book follows the format of the others--plant-by-plant descriptions provide information on their care and most common afflictions. Recommendations for treatment emphasize natural controls and discourage use of harmful chemicals. Advice on planting and propagation is also given. The latter part of the book is arranged by pest and disease, and because many of the pests attack plants covered in the previous books, there is a great deal of duplication. Also, the section on roses is almost identical to the section on roses in the landscape book. Still, this book will be useful for larger gardening collections.
