Master Gardener Help Desks

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.

Walk-in Help Desks are closed for the growing season. 

Winter gardening questions can be answered by submitting a request through the online help desk or by phone call to the McLean County Extension Office, 309-663-8306.
