Brilliant. Clear and easy to understand. Lots of colour photos, not just line drawings, meant that I could actually identify what was wrong with plants and then follow the advice for dealing with the problems. Book well organized so that you can search by plant, by disease or by photos. Others who have seen my copy of the book are very impressed - I just have to make sure they don't spirit it away!!
A very useful and authoratative guide to the whole subject of pest and disease control in the garden. It is a pity that rapidly changing legislation makes recommendations for the use of insecticides, fungicides etc so problematical.
This is a really brilliant book! I like in particular the plethora of phantastic images that have changed my way of looking at plants when I'm out for a stroll in the countryside or doing my shopping in the local supermarket. It definitely has sparked my interests in spotting pests and diseases, but in a very beneficial way when before I simply threw things away without even bothering a 2nd glimpse. Now I'm turned more into a plant physician. It's not a book to take out on a fieldtrip, but more something to look up when in a comfy armchair. Many images are so memorisable that they stick...I think it's a superb bargain!!!
