It's a question that every gardener mutters, probably hundreds of times over the course of a life spent in the garden: What's wrong with my plant? A new book, What's Wrong With My Plant? (And How Do I Fix It?) by David Deardorff and Kathryn Wadsworth (Timber Press, December 2009) aims to help gardeners answer just those questions. Using a handy system of flow charts, accompanied by detailed color photos and step-by-step organic treatments, the book tries to make it simple to diagnose and treat plant problems.
I found What's Wrong With My Plant to be a very useful book (even putting it through a few tests of my own, just to make sure it lived up to its promises!) and one that would make an excellent gift for yourself or any other gardeners in your life. I hope you'll check out my review, and please let me know if you've read the book, and what your impressions are.
