Featuring the most up-to-date science-based recommendations for keeping plants healthy and productive, this book includes hundreds of organic techniques and products for dealing with garden problems. You'll learn how to decide whether you need to treat an 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.
One of the rewards of organic gardening is developing a balanced ecosystem, in which plants naturally defend themselves against pests and diseases and where you'll seldom have to intervene. But if trouble does make its way into your garden this comprehensive handbook will help you stop insect pests in their tracks and curb plant diseases at the first sign of an outbreak.
Quick-reference format, A-Z plant entries, and the complete description of common and recently introduced pests and plant diseases.
