A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – April 10, 2023 – Purdue Plant Doctor

As a garden writer, I get a lot of questions every year basically asking this: What’s wrong with my (fill in the blank) plant? An accurate diagnosis is the critical first step before taking any corrective action…but how do gardeners get one, and then where do they get guidance on what to do next?  The creators of the online Purdue Plant Doctor that does just that—plus offers possible solutions—are here today.

Two Purdue professors, entomologist Cliff Sadof and plant pathologist Janna Beckerman, collaborated on the recent enhancements to the Purdue Plant Doctor online tool at PurduePlantDoctor dot com, and they offered advice on how to sharpen our diagnostic skills and learn to do the homework it takes to plot a course of action when trouble strikes.
