Becoming A Garden Detective:  Diagnosing Plant Problems

Tuesday, June 16, 2009
Steiner Ranch Towne Square Community Center
12550 Country Trails Lane
Austin 78732

Just when you think you’ve done everything right by your plants, one of them starts to go downhill.  One of the biggest challenges for gardeners is correctly diagnosing plant problems and finding effective, safe solutions.  Is your plant dying because of an insect, environmental or disease problem?  Join us to learn the causes of plant problems, the process for diagnosing plant problems, and preventive garden management techniques.  This class is free and open to the public.  A plant clinic will run during the seminar to help you diagnose current problems so please bring samples of problem plants.

These seminars are free, open ot the public, and require no reservations.  They are presented by the Travis County Master Gardeners Association, a volunteer arm of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service in Travis County. For more details, see or call the Travis County Master Gardener’s help desk at (512) 854-9600.
