Plant Disease Management

Plant Disease Management class at Mt. Cuba Center.

This program takes place in-person on two different Saturdays, July 31 and August 7.

Gardening with nature requires knowledge of the various pathogenic fungi, bacteria, and viruses that affect native plants and the environmental conditions that lead to infection. Become your own plant health detective and learn the signs and symptoms of the most common plant diseases in our landscapes. Study disease life cycles and discuss management strategies for prevention and control, then implement them in your garden.
