8 Simple Guidelines for Diagnosing Plant Problems

| 7/9/2019 10:44:00 AM


When plants are not growing and producing as they should, they will tell you what is wrong through their leaves.

The foliage on any type of plant will reveal everything a gardener needs to know about the health of the plant and the condition of the soil. If the foliage is not healthy and green, examine the leaves for pest infestation. If pests are not found, it's time to look deeper into the garden soil to diagnose the plant problem.

Leaves Tell All

When plant leaves are discolored, have spots or holes, falling off or look unusual in any way, that is the way the plant has of alerting you to a problem.

Plant leaves should be the correct color, and that will vary from plant to plant. Know what your plant’s leaves should look like when healthy, and be observant to any change. This is the best way to discover and diagnosis a plant problem.
