Overview

What's happening in your garden? Have the aphids landed on your rosebuds? (Maybe you're still wondering what those tiny green bugs are.) Is there mold or brown spots on the leaves of your plants? Has there been a deer sighting? Gardeners are in a constant struggle against the inevitable parade of adversaries that threaten your favorite plants. Now there's a new gardening tool to help you win the fight.

Ed Rosenthal's troubleshooting guide is here to show exactly what's plaguing your plants. The book divides problems into four color-coded sections—pests, diseases, nutrient deficiencies, and environmental stresses—and it's filled with photos of insects, infections, and leaf damage—the things you don’t necessarily plan for or want to see. Then it goes on to present eco-friendly solutions—safe for you, your family, and the planet.

As the "Guru of Ganja," Ed Rosenthal has long met his readers' demands for reliable solutions that are safe for use right up to harvest. Now Protect Your Garden provides a lifetime of experience for every gardener. Whether you're a rookie or veteran gardener, growing flowers or food, this book will help protect your plants and keep your harvest safe to be around, touch, and eat.
