Growing fruit in your own backyard or home orchard is a real pleasure. The benefits are enormous. You can have access to in-season fruit picked fresh from the tree or shrub, with zero transport miles, rare and unusual varieties with a greater nutritional variety, and delicious fruit flavors all year round. Furthermore, your health will benefit if you get out into the fresh air and sunshine of the garden. Pests and diseases will inevitably appear at some point in the gardening year, but they need not spoil the enjoyment of growing your own food. There are many useful and chemical-free ways of managing them - including encouraging birds and ladybugs to come and eat the insect pests! We hope you will enjoy using this book to make your fruit-full garden thrive, and your harvest increase. During the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries fruit diversity was huge, but in modern supermarkets only a limited range of commercial fruit varieties is now available to consumers. Heritage, heirloom and rare fruit enthusiasts across the world are currently reviving our horticultural legacy by renovating old orchards and identifying 'lost', unusual and historic fruit varieties. The goal is to make a much wider range of fruit trees available again to the home gardener. This series of handbooks aims to help.

Managing Pests and Diseases: A Handbook for New Zealand Gardeners is a completely revised edition of Rob Lucas's successful publication What's That Pest? It provides New Zealand's horticulturalists and gardeners with a simple, comprehensive, easily-used reference guide to pest identification and control. The photographic content has been significantly increased to aid identification, and much of the text has been updated, with several new sections added. The book covers the many garden and nursery production pests of bedding plants, houseplants, vegetables, fruit trees and ornamental trees and shrubs, including natives, as well as the disease-causing pathogens - fungi, bacteria and viruses. It includes examples of beneficials (predators and parasites of pests) and where appropriate, more examples of pest and disease symptoms. Rob Lucas actively promotes a holistic approach to pest control and stresses appropriate alternatives to pesticides where these are available and feasible. To develop this further he has included a new section that sets out the key principles and controls appropriate to organic growing.Managing Pests and Diseases is an essential reference book for all home gardeners, horticultural students, growers and garden centre staff.
