Philadelphia (CBS) – “What’s eating your tree? How come that half of your rhododendron is dead? Does this leaf look like it has some sort of miner in it? What should you plant in that spot where nothing seems to grow? Your neighbor told you that this is a symptom of a blight – is that right?”

Don’t ask me, but here’s someone you can ask: horticulturalist Scott Aker of the US National Arboretum. He’ll be answering questions about “What’s Bugging You In the Garden?” this Sunday, November 7th starting at 2 PM in the Sharpless Auditorium at the Haverford College Arboretum in Haverford, PA. He’s billed as ‘unstumpable,’ and while you may find a way to challenge that, he’ll attempt to answer those vexing plant questions that you’ve already asked everybody else – or just can’t seem to search well enough to unearth the answer on the Internet.

Admission to this event – and all of Scott Aker’s great advice – is free. For details and directions, click on the links:
