Troubleshooting Ornamentals Hands-On

The ability to spot trouble early in the landscape is important to maintain healthy and perfect-looking plants. Discolorations, stunted growth, spots, lesions, holes, and a good deal of other symptoms could be caused by diseases, pests, or nutritional problems. We will spend the first our in a lecture setting, and the other hour outdoors where we will examine closely a variety of common problems encountered in landscape ornamentals.
