The Gardener's Guide to Plant Diseases: Earth-Safe Remedies The Gardener's Guide to Plant Diseases:
Earth-Safe Remedies

by Barbara Pleasant
Paperback (1995)
With the exception of roses, this book is limited to diseases that infect 54 commonly grown vegetables and fruits.  Pleasant, author of The Gardener's Bug Book, discusses more than 50 plant diseases and recommends organic methods for controlling them.  The author insists that environmental concerns compelled her to look at disease control strategies that do not pollute the air, water, or soil.  Emphasis is placed on maximizing plants' ability to fight disease and on gardening methods that keep diseases in check, methods that include hot composting, crop rotation, soil solarization, and selecting the best varieties for your garden.  Say good-bye to corn smut, southern bacterial wilt, apple scab, halo blight, bean mosaic virus, and all the other tiny terrors that plague your plants!
