Description

An entertaining and practical collection of tips and tricks to outsmart all kinds of garden pests, written by one of Britain's most influential gardeners.

If you have ever waged war against squirrels to prevent them from ransacking your garden, you will know that they are wily beasts, who can find loopholes in the most cunning of defences. In this comprehensive guide, Anne Wareham recommends a host of ingenious anti-pest stratagems to protect your garden from a range of foes.

Includes:

* advice on dealing with all kinds of creatures, from rabbits, deer, snails and slugs to mites, beetles and bacteria - as well as weeds, the weather, people and much more

* Advice is also offered on how to resist fatuous horticultural trends and ignore so-called experts.

* Admitting that some pests can't be beaten, the book also advises when you should grow a different plant rather than prolonging the fight.

* Author Anne Wareham is a well-known gardening expert and has been described by the Telegraph as one of Britain's most influential gardeners.

Entertaining and practical, this is an honest book of advice that will be appreciated and enjoyed by amateur and professional gardeners alike.
