We wouldn't be using Dave's Garden if we weren't concerned about getting the "best" for our garden.
We are great customers for anything new: fertilizer, hydrogels or biostimulants. What's new and improved in insecticides and disease control?
Problem is ! Most of us do not have hort. degrees.
Jeff Gillman is using his knowledge and research to help us
"Do the right thing" for our plants.
He is the Consumer Reports for Gardeners.

Beer for slugs? Vinegar as an herbicide? Garlic and hot peppers to get rid of bugs? A lot of ideas go around about how to get rid of pests and diseases and help our gardens become more productive. This book cuts to the chase concerning what remedies work, which ones don't, and which ones may actually be harmful. The author tests each remedy to see the results instead of just relying on hearsay or gardening literature. This is really a very handy little book. You don't have to read it straight through. It's easy to find the remedy you're looking for and just read the entry for that. Definitely recommended.
