It's the question most commonly heard in every garden: what's wrong with my...? And with the bestselling What's Wrong With My Plant? and What's Wrong With My Vegetable Garden?, we've answered it for flower borders, perennial gardens, and vegetable beds. What's next? One of the most challenging parts of the garden--the delicious yet disease-prone fruit garden.
