WILLIAMSON COUNTY MASTER GARDENERS ASSOCIATION

Garden Talk Series @ Main: Thugs of Tennessee (Plant Diseases)

  • 15 May 2017
  • 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Williamson County Public Library
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. Bring a sample for diagnosis.
