Every gardener has their bugbears, or should it be bugs to bear - slugs, aphids, vine weevil and the rest. Now The Little Book of Garden Villains helps the starter gardener get to grips with the mighty garden pests that wage war on plants. Inspired by `Dad's Army', this amusing little book describes pest control methods with tongue firmly in cheek. Gardeners identify whether they're a commander, a soldier, a defender or a pacifist (or even a combination of all four). They see what it takes to become a king pest controller - strategy, wit and determination - whilst still holding on to their organic principles.
With an irreverant foreword by Wing Commander Gravesny Throttle-Mite (Retd) the book gives a new meaning to the phrase border control. Whether you shoot from the hip or commune with your slugs there's something for every one.
