Plant Health Handbook
for New Zealand
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.
