2. What’s wrong with my plant?

The Master Gardener Walk-In Plant Clinic has returned to Lowe's, ready again to offer advice and answer all your gardening questions. If you are having trouble with your plants, they can diagnose the problem for you. It could be bugs, fungus or overwatering. It could be just the cold weather. Come and visit. Master Gardeners Donna Kay, Renee Jones and Virginia Williams will be there waiting to help you. Master Gardeners have been trained by the University of Florida on many correct horticultural practices and problems. Pruning, pesticides, fertilizers, bug identification, grass problems, just to name a few. Please bring bugs or infected plants in a sealed plastic bag. Pictures on your phone or tablet will help in diagnosing. The clinic is from noon until 3 p.m., every Tuesday, through April 18.
