The A-Z
Plant Health Handbook
for New Zealand

$NZ24.95

WELLINGTON plantsman Jon Muller has 25 years' experience in the horticulture industry and this practical knowledge is put to good use in The A-Z Plant Health Handbook for New Zealand, from the author of Wellington Gardens and The A-Z Pruning Handbook for New Zealand.

Written for New Zealand gardeners, this new book covers 100 popular garden plants and some of the pest, disease and cultivation problems that prevent them from always looking their best.

Each listing includes symptoms and solutions, so you can quickly diagnose and treat the problem. Recipes for organic treatments - from pungent garlic spray to pyrethrum and mustard concoctions - are included for gardeners keen to reduce their use of conventional chemicals.

So the next time your lawn, conifers, ferns, perennials, palms or orchids are looking less than perfect, reach for this handy reference book and you'll soon have them back on the road to high health.

A worthy investment - and one that you'll refer to time and again.
