What Made My Good Plant Go Bad?

Saturday, August 9, 2014 - 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
York Street

Rocky Mountain Gardening Elective

Did the glorious beauty promised by the garden catalog, nursery salesperson or garden designer fall flat when your tree's leaves started to look like hanging shreds of green tissue or your shrub assumed a ghostly shroud of white covering its leaves?

You may be surprised that insects and diseases are NOT the main cause of problems in the garden.Because of this, you have more control over how many of those problems you may get. This course will focus on the root causes that attract those pests to your garden in the first place and what to do about it.

This hands-on class will give you an overview of the most common types of plant problems and what you can do to prevent their yearly reoccurrence.

Note: This class is a lecture and hands on lab. You may bring a sample of a plant or turf you want diagnosed to class. Registration confirmation will include info on how to take a good sample.

$39 member, $44 non-member.

Instructor: Patti O'Neal
