Have you ever had a problem in your garden?

Chances are that if you have a garden – you have experienced a problem in it at least once.

Sometimes, it is hard to know how to solve the problem.  

Sunburned Sago Palm
I am often asked by friends, clients, readers of my blog and newsletters for help in their garden.  
Overly pruned Cassia that lead to dead growth.
 Sometimes they know what the problem is, but need to know how to solve it.
Problem with slugs? Set out a bowl of beer.
 Other times, I am asked to help them to identify the problem and the solution. 

At night, the beer attracts slugs who will drown in the beer.
Timber Press has quite a few gardening books solely dedicated to problem solving in the garden.  

I was asked by them to review the book “What’s Wrong With My Vegetable Garden” by David Deardorff & Kathryn Wadsworth.


Quite honestly, I loved this book.  

The book is filled with color photos of the different problems that can affect your vegetables.  One of my pet peeves with some gardening books is the lack of photos and/or black & white photos.  
Information about each type of vegetable is listed with helpful growing tips.  
The authors provide helpful, organic solutions for all types of pest, fungal, insect and environmental problems that can affect your vegetables.
