The home gardener faces an almost bewildering array of problems: the cost of land has reduced the amount of space available for gardening to a minimum; new varieties of plants, often hybridized for maximum production, are expensive and require a substantial amount of knowledge for successful cultivation; and the often indiscriminate use of insecticides and herbicides has curbed the population of beneficial insects, seemingly without making great headway with the horde of pests that return to haunt the gardener yearly.
