Harakeke, or New Zealand flax (Phormium spp) is home to a myriad of insects which live amongst its leaves, roots and flowers. In the right conditions, their feeding can inflict considerable damage on the plant and also the introduction of disease-bearing organisms. This not only affects the ornamental appearance of harakeke, but lessens the quality and quantity of leaf material and fibre available to weavers. Intended for people who grow flax for pleasure or profit, this book describes insects and diseases commonly associated with harakeke, and discusses control methods for the most harmful, including natural control measures, insecticide sprays and home remedies.
