Final session announced in fall series of gardening program

The fall series of the Four Seasons Gardening Program from the University of Illinois Extension will conclude with a session titled “Plant Pathogenic Viruses.”

Plants can’t get the flu, but they can get a number of viral diseases. Join Diane Plewa, plant diagnostic outreach specialist, to learn about plant pathogenic viruses, including common symptoms, common virus diseases, and management for these tiny pathogens.

This program will be offered via a live webinar at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, at the following University of Illinois Extension offices: Bureau County in Princeton, Marshall-Putnam counties in Henry and LaSalle County in Ottawa. This webinar may also be viewed from wherever you have internet access at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 9, or 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 11, by pre-registering at go.illinois.edu/4seasons_webinars. Recorded videos of these sessions can be viewed following the program at go.illinois.edu/fourseasonsrecordings. This is the final session in the fall series.

Each session is free to the public. Advance registration is needed. Phone or email the LaSalle County University of Illinois Extension office for more details at 815-433-0707, or email Extension Program Coordinator Meg Overocker at meo@illinois.edu.
