Thugs of Tennessee: Plant Diseases (WCPL Garden Talk Series) @ Main
Main Library
Monday, Jun. 11, 1:30pm - 3:00pm

Are the leaves on your favorite plant withered, covered in black spots, or curling and distorted? Is the growth of your fruit trees stunted? Do you see unusual growth on the trees in your backyard? Your plants could be suffering from a variety of diseases, including blight, rot, or cankers. We will discuss the basics of plant pathology and how you can identify these pathogens by the damage they cause. Feel free to bring a sample for diagnosis (in a sealed container!).
