Présentation de l'éditeur

No more harmful sprays in the garden!

Do you want to grow beautiful, delicious fruits and vegetables without poisoning your yard with chemicals? The Naturally Bug-Free Garden shows you how to bring your garden ecosystem into balance so that beneficial insects and larger animals do the work of pest control for you.

In addition to ecosystem balancing, the book includes hands-on pest-control techniques such as succession planting, choosing resistant plant varieties, and shielding plants with row covers. Paying attention to the nutritional needs of your vegetables can also deter pests, and the remaining insects are simple to hand-pick.

Hess's newest book sums up seven years of experience growing all of her family's vegetables. With the help of this photo-rich text, your garden can also be naturally bug-free.

This expanded second edition will be available as a paperback from Skyhorse Publishing in spring 2015.

Biographie de l'auteur

Anna Hess dreamed about moving back to the land ever since her parents dragged her off their family farm at the age of eight. She worked as a field biologist and nonprofit organizer before acquiring fifty-eight acres and a husband, then quit her job to homestead full time. She admits that real farm life involves a lot more hard work than her childhood memories entailed, but the reality is much more fulfilling and she loves pigging out on sun-warmed strawberries and experimenting with no-till gardening, mushroom propagation, and chicken pasturing. She also enjoys writing about the adventures, both on her blog at WaldenEffect.org, and in her books. Her first paperback, The Weekend Homesteader, helped thousands of homesteaders-to-be find ways to fit their dreams into the hours leftover from a full-time job. In addition, a heaping handful of ebooks on Amazon serve a similar purpose.

Anna Hess' new ebook, Naturally Bug Free, is an excellent resource for gardeners who want to combat garden pests, but not with man-made chemicals. It has a lot of the same advice as other books like 'Good Bug Bad Bug', and 'Organic Gardener's Handbook of Natural Pest and Disease Control', but at a fraction of the price. The main difference is that Naturally Bug Free covers only the most common garden insects in detail (and not bacterial, viral, or fungal diseases at all) , but gives a systematic approach that can be used for the rest. Also, Hess' photography is much better.

Hess lays out a number of steps gardeners can take to develop a well-functioning garden ecosystem, starting with an exhortation to 'know thy bugs.' If an unknown bug arrives in your garden, you must find out it's function, and Hess gives a number of resources to do just that.

After covering a number of garden pests common almost everywhere in the U.S. (based mainly on a Mother Earth News survey), Hess moves on to methods for encouraging friendlies in the garden, from good insects and worms, to birds, amphibians and even mammals. Hess also points out that a lot of the beneficials have some annoying quirks, such as box turtles that eat tomatoes or birds that take one bite of a strawberry, but notes that their presence is net positive after considering the number of slugs they'll eat.

Hess also gives advice for the time period between establishing a garden and having a balanced ecosystem to keep pests in check. In this regard, judicious timing of plantings and planting trap crops can be helpful. The book wraps up by pointing out that even fruits and veggies that aren't grocery store-quality (i.e., that have some cosmetic damage), can still be delicious and nutritious with a little extra trimming. (Wish more authors would tout such an approach!), and an excellent epilogue--an excerpt from another of Hess' books, 'Homegrown Humus'--which is especially appropriate given the key role soil health plays in plant health, and consequently plants' ability to fend off pests.

Our only criticism is that, because Hess advocates ecosystem-level management of garden pests by encouraging beneficial predators that depend on a certain minimum population of pests to eat (i.e., a biological equilibrium), the book would more appropriately be titled 'Naturally Bug-Optimal.' But 'bug-free' definitely rolls off the tongue better.

In sum, 'Naturally Bug Free' is well worth the price of admission. Definitely recommend it.

I love this book. It's just what I was looking for. I cringe whenever I hear of people using sprays to kill spiders and other beneficials like bees. Two bad things in one, killing spiders and bees, and using pesticides. There is a better way and you'll find it in this book. This information is especially good to teach young kids, who often know little about nature these days. Pest identification is key and this book covers the different types of "bugs."

In my own yard we have sour cherry trees. We noticed every few years one or more of the trees will become infested with dark brown aphids on the underside of the trees. The first time I saw them I tried to spray them off with water. Then I noticed that ants were farming the aphids so I thought something bigger was going on. The trees were very healthy and the aphids did not hurt them at all. Now, we leave them alone and have noticed, when we do, the next year we get a bumper crop of cherries on that tree. Still not sure what is going on but it is interesting.

This has excellent information, beautiful photography, and makes great sense. Definitely worth the price and then some. I too wish I'd known this info when I first started gardening.

This is the place to start if you are looking for guidance on chemical free gardening. You'll learn the most common garden pests for your area as well as which plant varieties are resistant to them. There are photos of the bugs along with photos of their homes and the damage they cause so you'll definitely be able to identify your pest. There's information on how to draw in the pests' natural predators. She also includes detailed instructions on hand picking and more.

This book is so valuable for a gardener! It not only well-written, the photos are many and excellent for identifying pests. Once again this author has written a keeper of a book. This one should be kept by every gardener. Identifying pests becomes so easy and she gives ways of controlling the pests with natural means or safe remedies and the book gives info on good and bad creatures in your garden. Altho mainly for vegetable and fruit gardening there is also good info on flower pests. She writes as if she is sitting across from you and she shares what did or didnt work for her. Love it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning about the good and the bad bugs 11 février 2014
Par David Hale - Publié sur Amazon.com

Naturally Bug-Free is an excellent resource to help identify those creatures that are either beneficial or harmful to your garden plants. Anna not only describes how to identify many common bugs but also explains how to identify others that may be more common in your local area. She also includes sections on other beneficial animals (birds, snakes, frogs, etc.) that may be encouraged to visit your garden and consume problematic insects.

In the past I have purchased bags of ladybugs to keep down aphids, but without building an environment where they can survive year round in my garden, they left once the aphids were gone. Anna makes great suggestions and practical guidance to make your yard and garden a place where these types of beneficial insects and creatures can thrive year round and attractive to those that migrate naturally.
