Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This follows the format and approach of Rodale's Garden Problem Solver ( LJ 6/1/88), which focused on fruits and vegetables. Here Ball looks at trees, shrubs, lawns, and other landscape plants. The most popular varieties are described, and detailed care requirements are provided. Common cultivation problems and pests and diseases that afflict these plants are covered. Emphasis is on prevention and on using natural and organic controls rather than more toxic insecticides. Some suggestions, like handpicking insects off plants, are labor intensive, while others rely on the use of biological controls. The second half of the book looks at each pest and disease separately and gives more detailed advice on controlling and preventing problems. This is a good alternative for gardeners trying to avoid more powerful chemicals.

Format: Hardcover
What an informative book! Now I know why the chipmunks were digging up my bulbs, but not eating them. I found out what was making the notches on my lily of the valley (weevils) and what to do about it. I learned I should prune back my ajuga and give winter protection for the azaleas and rhododendrons. I also found out what the strange growths were on the azaleas.
This book covers hundreds of plants with a description, planting tips, and most common diseases and treatment. Being Rodale, the treatment is the most environmentally friendly way to solve your landscape problem.

Format: Paperback
This book provides easy to find solutions to your disease and insect problems. It is organized by plant common names, and there is loads of information on pests and problems associated with each plant named. I only wish there were a larger variety of less common plants. But most common ornamentals are included.
