What's Wrong with My Garden.

This spring and summer has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs when it's come to the weather, and it may have left your garden looking not as fall-fabulous as you'd have hoped.

Here are some of the questions and topics covered in this episode:

  • How to identify and treat powdery mildew on susceptible plant, like phlox and ninebark.
