If you have ever asked yourself, What’s wrong with my vegetable garden? this is the book for you. Gardens are naturally full of insects, and organic gardeners understand that many insect species are beneficial, even essential to the garden. Pest species are also a reality, though, and some pose serious challenges to the natural cultivation of fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants.
Here on the West Coast other wildlife, such as birds, squirrels and deer, can also be a nuisance (an understatement!). Garden vegetables can also suffer from viruses and fungal infections. Identifying the specific problem is key to finding an organic solution. And it may help prevent the spread of disease from one crop to another, even from one growing season to another. WCS staff highly recommend What’s Wrong with My Vegetable Garden? as a useful diagnostic tool.
