The Hands-On Gardener: Pests is a thoroughly practical guide to pest management the organic way. As in any holistic approach, the emphasis is on prevention. Beginning with the soil, where 80% of insect problems originate, this guide shows how to keep plants healthier-and opportunistic pests at bay-through a combination of soil amendments and organic fertilizers. It covers timed planting, interplanting, homeopathic sprays, and beneficial insects.
