Show of hands if you already have a book in your personal library that helps you find out what’s wrong with your plant?
If you raised your hand, I’m guessing you already have What’s Wrong With My Plant? (And How Do I Fix It?) By David Deardorff and Kathryn Wadsworth (Timber Press).
If you didn’t raise your hand, I’m guessing that like me, you have literally hundreds of gardening books, but no one book like this one that deals exclusively with plant problems.
So, let’s follow along in the style of What’s Wrong With My Plant? (And How Do I Fix It?) and see what the remedy is for your library problem.
My library does not have a good book on plant problems.
Do you want such a book?
If yes, go to next paragraph.
There are three ways to solve the problem of not having a good book on plant problems.
You can purchase What’s Wrong With My Plant? (And How Do I Fix It?) for yourself.
You can ask someone to buy the book for you as a gift.
You can enter a book giveaway and be one of three lucky people who will get their own copy of What’s Wrong With My Plant? (And How Do I Fix It?).
Which remedy would you like to try first? The book giveaway? Yes, that's what I would try first, too.
