For the plant husbandman who would protect his grounds, here is a thorough job of prescription for common garden ills, as well as advice on transplanting, preparing a garden for winter, caring for indoor plants while vacationing, dealing with a frost. Troublemakers--insects, diseases, physiogenic troubles--in the garden are noted. There follow prescriptions in chart form for dormant and general garden pests; common lawn weeds; attackers of evergreen, deciduous trees and shrubs, vegetable and fruit gardens, and trees. Information on requirements (light and temperature, soil and nutritional) of indoor plants, on how to grow a lawn, how to plan and execute a program for weed control and fertilization, the equipment required to apply pesticides, pesticides and their toxicity and handling is also included. Useful to have as a garden tool for the hand that holds the spray gun.
