Master Gardener Help Line

Our master gardeners are ready to help with your garden question, identification or issue. Bring your question to the Help Line by telephone, e-mail or walk in on Wednesdays Noon to 2PM during the growing season. Our garden experts will review your request and set you in the right direction. Also, as an extra bonus if you bring in a soil sample our garden team will test for PH. PH is important for the adsorption of nutrients in your soil.
