Jerry Baker's Backyard Problem Solver Author:Jerry Baker Jerry Baker ,America's Master Gardener has written over 50 books on gardening and is about as knowledgeable as anyone ,to help you in being successful in your garden.

The book is presented in an excellent manner,profusely illustrated,very well organized ,and with a very helpful Index.
If there is anything that stands out immediately when you look at this book ;it is that it is filled with recipes,mixes,tonics,or as I'd like to call them "concoctions" to help your plants,deal with pests or anything where people usually head to the local garden center ,to buy another "miracle product",that gets added to that endless pile,you have already collected.
And how does he do it.? He simply uses products that are already around every house,as well as many that get thrown in the garbage.
