Getting Help With Gardening Issues

Getting Help With Gardening IssuesI took this picture along with a close up and sent both to my county agricultural agent. I'm posting it on ThriftyFun because I think it has a nice combination of early fall colors.


To the far left is a tiny patch of marigolds. Beneath them, a few small ajuga Burgundy Glow. To the far right you see a portion of a bed of vincas. Near bottom center is the beginnings of a semi circle of Chocolate Chip Ajuga. Ajuga spreads rapidly, so my circle will be complete in one season.

In the center is a bunch of ailing achimenes. This is my reason for taking the picture. Beautiful early on, the achimenes now appear to be diseased. By sending the pictures to my Ag agent, I hope to learn what's wrong with my achimenes and how to treat it.

So, I'm posting this picture for two reasons: to share the nice colors and to remind you that your local county agricultural agent is there to offer free advice on any gardening question. Submitting a picture will do wonders in helping the agent identify your problem.

That's right, Doug. We can gather so much information and ideas from our fellow members right here on ThrifyFun. But when we're stumped on a particular issue, most likely, our ag agent can come to the rescue.


Member ideas and advice are the most fun, though. We get to share our garden pictures.
