No matter how hard you try there is no such thing as a perfect gardener. You walk out to your garden one morning and something just doesn't look right. How do you diagnose the problem and create a solution? First you need to know how to recognize the signs. Some signs are easy to detect, others may remain invisible until it is too late. Routine maintenance, keen observation and the proper knowledge can help to avoid complete destruction of your crops. A garden requires constant nurturing in order to produce at it's fullest potential.
