Part One presents easy-to-follow, illustrated flow charts Organized by where on the plant the symptoms appear,readers are allowed to accurately diagnose the problem.

Easy diagnosis and lots of pictures

This book made it easy to find the problem with my citrus trees, and the solution. I love the diagnosis pages, complete with drawings of what the area of the plant might look like, and the pictures in the 2nd half of the book that show what the pests, diseases, and other issues look like.
