Bugs, slugs and other invaders

Sometimes, it's just no fun being a gardener: all those aphids, slugs and
other pests waiting to destroy your hard work and efforts. However, that
could all change if you read a book that landed on my desk a few weeks ago.
Bugs, slugs and other invaders: 50 ways to beat them, published by Hamlyn -
one of the smallest gardening books I have seen, but with some of the most
useful information you will ever read. With a good deal of humour and
cartoon sketches, this book provides 50 ways in which you can fight the
fight against your garden invaders; from aphids to cats and slugs to mice,
you will find a solution in this book.

Containing some sound and informed information on a garden's friends and
foes, it explains how to control the foe organically and encourage the
friend such as ladybirds and hedgehogs to fight on your behalf.

A brilliant book every gardener should read and, if you are not a gardener
and live in a flat with only one window and no plants, then it's still worth
reading because it will make you smile and that's worth five quid of
anyone's money.
