A handy guide to the most common plant diseases, pests and damage with information on how to treat them homeopathically. Christiane Maute is a pioneer in this field, who started treating the useful and ornamental plants in her garden with homeopathy ten years ago.
The way in which plants react to homeopathic treatment is in many cases astonishing. Ms. Maute gives the main homeopoathic remedies for all the most common diseases, such as leaf spot on roses, tomato blight, fire blight on fruit trees, aphics, leaf curl, cancer, mildew, fruit rot and sooty mould, along with problems like slug infestation and weak growth.
Treatments for the consequences of frost and hail damage, exposure to excess damp, heat and sunlight, as well as ‘wounds’ inflicted when pruning or repotting are also explained clearly, so that any amateur gardener can use them.
Useful illustrations and brief notes are supplied for most of the diseases discussed, enabling even the novice to recognise the ailment at a glance and easily find the right remedy. The dosage and treatment method are described in detail. The book is rounded off by a short, clear materia medica giving information on each remedy.
