Pests and diseases are probably responsible for putting more people off gardening than anything else, and they can reduce prized plants to sickly specimens that just don’t perform in the garden in no time at all. In this illuminating, interesting and amusing talk (at least that’s what garden clubs tell me!), garden writer, broadcaster and author Geoff Hodge looks at the various ways of preventing pest and disease attacks in the first place and how to deal with them when they do occur. You may be surprised at exactly what you can and cannot do. This is a practical demonstration.

About Geoff Hodge

I am a freelance garden writer, writing for various national gardening magazines and websites – as well as lots more besides! Previously, I was the Web Editor for the Royal Horticultural Society, Gardening Editor of Garden News magazine and Technical Editor of Garden Answers magazine. I have written eight gardening books, with titles ranging from pruning and propagation to allotments and vegetable growing. I broadcast on the gardening programmes on both BBC Radio Cambridgeshire and BBC Essex. And I appear on Q&A panels at flower shows across the country and give lots of talks and demonstrations at garden centres and for gardening clubs. As well as "live" talks, I can also give my talks via group-organised Zoom meetings. My fee for this is £95.
