Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Annuals, perennials, bulbs, and roses are covered in the latest offering on gardening from Rodale, which includes Rodale's Garden Problem Solver (LJ 6/1/88) and Rodale's Landscape Problem Solver (LJ 6/15/89). This book follows the format of the others--plant-by-plant descriptions provide information on their care and most common afflictions. Recommendations for treatment emphasize natural controls and discourage use of harmful chemicals. Advice on planting and propagation is also given. The latter part of the book is arranged by pest and disease, and because many of the pests attack plants covered in the previous books, there is a great deal of duplication. Also, the section on roses is almost identical to the section on roses in the landscape book. Still, this book will be useful for larger gardening collections. Organic Gardening Book Club selection. --Peter C. Leonard, Mt. Lebanon P.L., Pa.
