Garden Plant Problems Diagnosis - Causes, Cures
Is there a Doctor in the house!?
When your plants are growing well, gardening is a breeze! When plant care
problems arise in the rose garden, the herb garden, or the pumpkin patch,
gardening can get a little frustrating. Suddenly you find yourself in the
role of Plant Doctor, without any formal education in the field of diagnosing
and healing sick plants.
Well Doctor, we've always said that part of the fun of gardening, is learning
new things. The first step is to diagnose plant problems. Put on your
investigator's cap, examine the symptoms, identify the causes, administer
the cure (most are quite simple), and learn some new "stuff".
We hope that whatever problem brought you here will be answered in this section
and will be a simple prescription.
Important: Symptoms and causes are not the same thing, although they
are directly related. A symptom is what you observe. A cause is "Why" the
symptom exists, what created the symptom.
