The practical encyclopedia of garden pests and diseases : an illustrated guide to common problems and how to deal with them successfully
London : Lorenz, c2004.
The secret of a healthy and productive garden is being able to identify the pests and diseases that might be present in the average plot. Where plants thrive, insect pests will be nearby. Being able to identify the first sign that a problem is around and knowing what damage a pest can do in different stages of its life cycle will help keep you one step ahead. Every plant is a host for an array of insects. The trick is learning to keep the balance in favor of the plants. The Practical Encyclopedia of Garden Pests and Diseases includes 750 of the most common pests, viruses, diseases and physiological problems that can affect the garden. Each entry contains a description of the identifying characteristics of a problem in all its different stages and defines the parts of the plant it affects. It gives reasons why the problem might be present in the garden, and suggests biological, chemical or organic methods of repelling and eradicating it. A detailed introduction describes what a pest is, in all its varied forms, from microscopic insects to highly visible beetles. It shows how to distinguish a physiological problem-one that is caused by site, aspect, soil or the weather-from a disease, which might affect just one or two plants. Lawn, pond and weed problems are given specific attention, and information is provided to show you how to encourage natural predators into the garden in order to achieve a healthy balance of wildlife and plants. This key reference is the most comprehensive sourcebook available to help you keep ahead of all potential garden problems. Book jacket.
