    A great reference for professional and home gardeners This is a handy little book for insect, disease, and care problems in the vegetable garden. I’m a professional landscaper, and while I was trained in pest control, my horticultural education was largely limited to ornamentals. So in my recent forays into vegetable gardening, there have been a few problems that I haven’t yet been able to figure out.Ten minutes into this book, and I had two persistent issues solved. The most exciting discovery for me was that the rough, scabby patches on my pumpkins were caused by too much water! I didn’t think I was overwatering, but when I thought about it, I realized that the plant with the problem was right at the center of my garden sprinkler, so it probably got more water than every other plant in the area. Knowing that was worth the price of the book, as avoiding scabby produce in future years will be something I’m greatly thankful for.The layout of this book is set up for quick reference and problem-solving, so it’s not a book that you need to sit down with and read cover to cover in order to benefit from. I’d definitely recommend it for gardeners who would like some quick help troubleshooting problems in their vegetable gardens.

    Brilliant Format I’ve worked in nurseries and now have a garden design and coaching business. I also have my own garden. In all these categories this book would be a big hit. It really makes diagnosis easy. Here’s how it works: I say to myself, what’s wrong with ______ (a particular vegetable)? Then I look up that vegetable in the diagnosis section (last half of the book, the first half gives plant profiles for about all you might want to grow). I find _____ vegetable in that last half and there are pictures of all the problems that beset that particular plant with organic solutions.I was at a home show this weekend and showed it to many people. I was that impressed!Easy Sneezy!
