The doctor is in.
The University of California Botanical Garden in Berkeley holds a Sick Plant Clinic on the first Saturday of every month.
Take them a sample of your ailing plant and UC plant pathologist Dr. Robert Raabe, UC entomologist Dr. Nick Mills, and their team of experts will diagnose its malady.
The event's from 9 am to noon, it's free, and no reservations are necessary.
Now maybe the plants at the garden center will stop trying to hide when they see you coming.
