Too often disease or insects are our prime suspects when considering damaged or dead landscape

over. However, diagnosing plant problems when there is no apparent disease or pest can be difficult.
Steve Allgeier, the Horticultural Consultant and Master Gardener Coordinator with the University of

homeowners make and how to avoid these errors, plus provide resources for the most up-to-date
information on caring for your landscape plants.
