Every gardener knows that, despite our best efforts, eventually something will go wrong in the garden. The trick is, first, to accurately diagnose the problem and, second, to find a safe solution that protects the gardener as well as the garden. An accurate diagnosis is important. A gardener needs to know whether he or she is dealing with spider mites or aphids, powdery mildew or bacterial blight, insufficient water or root rot. Knowing what kind of pest, disease, or disorder is affecting the garden is important to find a safe and effective solution.
