Serving Livingston, McLean and Woodford Counties

Problems with your yard or garden? Are pests or weeds concerning you?

You have questions. We have answers! Master Gardeners are available to help you with those gardening questions. They can assist in identifying problems and finding solutions. Bring your questions and any samples you have. Samples should be enclosed in a plastic bag or container and should be fresh to obtain a good diagnosis.

If questions arise at a time the help desks are not open, please call or email the local Extension office and leave a message for the Master Gardeners. They will return your call as soon as possible.
