Session Description

“What’s wrong with my plant?” If you hear this question from your customers, this workshop is for you.  We will review the diagnostic skills and methods to make the best on-site assessment for common disease problems of trees, shrubs and flowers.  Participants will learn the visual cues that help distinguish between living factors (fungus, bacteria, virus) and non-living factors (nutrition, weather, chemical injury).  Part of the workshop is a practice with picture samples of plant diseases.
