HPSW June 19th Meeting @ 7-9pm -Elaine Sherbrooke -“Identifying Insect Damage in the Garden”

Identifying Insect Damage in the Garden” —  Elaine Sherbrooke

So, what caused the damage on that lettuce leaf, on your prize lily or your would-be tasty asparagus? Learning to recognize insect feeding patterns is a key to garden pest management. And in the Northwest, we have quite a rogue’s gallery of garden pests, most of them non-native (illiegal immigrant insects, if you will). Elaine is well-qualified and experienced in helping gardeners solve their garden mysteries. The slide show will be supplemented by some hands-on examples. Don’t miss it!

Elaine Sherbrooke has been a Master Gardener since 1994, and a Master Gardener Diagnostician since 2000.  She is in charge of the Master Gardener diagnostic lab housed at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the UW campus, staffed with 18 Master Gardener volunteers with advanced training in plant pathology and diagnosis.
