To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I got this book recently and I have really enjoyed browsing through it.
I have found the section that has identified the pest and then describes the problems it causes and how best to get rid of it the most useful.
The first half of the book has is ordered by the type of plant that you have and tells and describes potential problems to you so you can identify what has gone wrong.
The only reason I haven't given this book 5 stars is because it is really written for the us and Canada. I don't know how much of this book is therefore irrelevant/useful. So far it's told me how to tackle them pesky slugs but I don't know whether it contains information about all of the pests in my garden. I wish I had known before ordering it (although I probably would have ordered it still).
I have the older version of this book and love the drawings of each plant that shows how insects and diseases affect the plant. The Kindle version of this book does not have them. It does seem to have the insect pictures still.
Book is a good read and has good explanations...... but really needs more photos and larger photos to make it easier to understand disease processes and remedies. Covers the basics of pest and disease control with a good sectional format. 4 out of 5 stars.
Amazing book, I puned it "the Bible" has a lot of information on pest, diseases , growing issues, organic sprays. etc ect. But it could always have more information. Most of the common things we like to grow is in the book, but not all. (Only reason why it didn't get a 5)
