CSIRO Garden Rescue
Every gardener has faced challenges, from dealing with pests that create havoc to having to rebuild a garden after a major catastrophe such as a bushfire or cyclone. Fortunately, most of us will never encounter the most severe natural phenomena and face the heartbreaking task of beginning again. Drought, heatwaves, bushfires, frosts, storms, diseases and pests of all descriptions make their mark on our gardens, leaving them in need of rescue. Sometimes, remediation is quite simple. At other times, the challenges are greater and can leave us disheartened and puzzled about how to proceed. This book will be your guide to rescuing your garden from just about any problems that might occur. But, rescue after the damage is done is only part of the story. In most cases, potential damage can be avoided or minimised by some simple but effective gardening strategies.
