One of the rewards of organic gardening is developing a balanced ecosystem, in which plants naturally defend themselves against pests and disease and where you will seldom have to intervene. But if trouble does make its way into your garden, this comprehensive handbook will help stop insect pests in their tracks and curb plant diseases at the first sign of an outbreak. It features the most up-to-date science-based recommendations for keeping plants healthy and productive, as well as techniques and products for dealing with garden problems. You will learn how to decide whether you need to treat and infestation or outbreak, how to make choices among the numerous safe, natural options available, and how to use these home remedies and nontoxic control products and methods. It also contains a quick-reference format, A-to-Z plant entries, and the complete descriptions of common and recently introduced pests and plant diseases included in this book.
This handbook is an illustrated plant encyclopedia that lists the symptoms and solutions for major problems of over two hundred popular plants; features identification guides to insects and diseases that plague plants; and lists acceptable organic control techniques and products.
