Book Review: Garden Pests, Diseases & Good Bugs by Denis Crawford - Reviewed by (29 Nov 2016)

As an organic gardener, this book has become my go-to guide. Much quicker than scrolling through google images, and written for the AUSTRALIAN gardener, this book is a great reference guide. Importantly it only focuses on what you will find in your Australian garden, so time is not wasted looking at pests found only in other countries. The photographs are clear, colourful and large enough to easily identify the pests/diseases. It also focuses on the Good Bugs which is essential for the organic gardener. Dennis Crawford is well known in gardening circles Australia wide and this book is a real treasure trove.
