There are a number of books available that cover plant problems. The problem, until now, is that none of them include a systematic method for nailing down the source. You browse the book until you find a photo that looks like your problem plant then read. If you're lucky the book has a good index that uses the same terms to describe problems that you do. Having spent untold hours in Master Gardener plant clinics helping people diagnose plant problems I would have loved to have had this book back then.
In What's Wrong With My Plant, Deardorff and Wadsworth offer us a straightforward diagnostic *system*. There's a step-by-step flowchart method for figuring out what's wrong. The method is brilliant and what's even better, it's explained well, in easy to understand language. That's the first part of the book. The rest of the book is the typical encyclopedia of photos and descriptions. The photos are clear and the descriptions are in straightforward, plain English. Organic solutions are offered.
Some people may find the solution section a bit limited. You won't find suggestions for toxic chemicals to, say, kill bugs. I won't go into organic solution vs. toxic pesticide debate, other to say that the solutions offered in this book are time tested and do work. They may take a bit more effort than buying a spray, but will leave you with a healthier garden overall. Even if you don't believe that, the diagnostic portion of the book still offers the best system anybody has come up with
The authors combine drawings, photos, and prose with a no-fault process that anyone can use...homeowners, landscapers, lawn maintenance crews, everyone! Nurseries oughta hide one in the back room, so they can return to a questioning customer with brilliant, accurate advice. WalMart and the big box stores, ought to stock the book, too!
I got the hardback verson and I'm glad I did because this is a lifetime resource. And, I'm also giving a few copies away as Christmas presents, knowing full-well that they'll be actually be used by the recipients for a long time hence.
On the plus side, the pictures are nice but neither the pictures, nor the illustrations are very, very helpful and your plant problem may be something that the book depicts a bit differently.
Bottom line: you are better off searching for solutions online than paying for a thick, glossy book with nice pictures and very general advice.
