Healthy indoor and outdoor environments, expanded local food production, and support of sustainable landscapes.
Trust the horticulture expert of Illinois Extension to share his expertise and experience with volunteers and the broader community.
We know you want the healthiest plants possible to thrive in your garden or landscape. You need reputable, science-based information to make the best decisions, instead of home remedies and myths about what really works to control pests, pathogens, and diseases. You’ve probably heard a lot of advice on gardening or landscaping. Growing successfully can be a challenge worthy of overcoming with unbiased, researched based information provided by our horticulture educator.
Call, email or visit any of our Extension offices for answers to any and all gardening and lawn care questions including vegetable and fruit gardening, pest management, tree or shrub care and more. If possible, bring samples in a container or plastic bag, or take photos to help with identification and disease problems. You may also submit a question.
