Lumps on your lemons? Daffodils refusing to flower? Hebes turning yellow? If you have a gardening problem, look no further. In The New Zealand Plant Doctor Andrew Maloy has compiled answers to the most common problems gardeners face, which he has assembled from years of experience answering readers' questions in his popular 'Plant Doctor' column for Weekend Gardener magazine. He offers sound and practical advice on eradicating disease, pest and weed control, spraying, feeding and more. From organic remedies to approved chemicals, Andrew gives sensible and proven remedies tailored to New Zealand gardens. More than 20 realistic full-colour illustrations give this book a reassuring and charming character in addition to depicting some of the more common garden problems. A comprehensive index directs the reader to specific plants, problems and solutions.
