Live Stream - McDonald Garden Center's Facebook Page

Just like you stock your medicine cabinet with supplies for your health, plants have common issues and ailments that require some care as well. Every avid gardener, beginner to expert, deals with insects and critters that eat and disrupt our plants. Along with pest control, plants need care and help to grow to either produce fruits and veggies, grow efficiently, or even flower longer and more often. In this live seminar, Mike Westphal, the Garden Guru takes us through his top picks for both solutions for plant pests as well as foods and fertilizers to help indoor and outdoor plants grow to their full potential.
