Garden Rescue comes to the aid of gardeners everywhere - helping to identify problems quickly and prevent them from happening again. Whether your wisteria is wilting, your rose bush isn't flowering, or your fig tree is failing to produce any fruit, it helps to distinguish between a minor issue that is not a cause for panic, and a major problem that could wipe out a whole crop or kill a favorite plant.
