To receive the best possible answer to your gardening question, please provide as much information as possible. This includes bringing a sample of the plant (or insect, spider, etc.) with which you have a question or concern into the Extension office. If it is not practical for you to bring a sample into the office, please provide a photograph that captures the plant or section of your yard with which you have a question or concern. A wide-angle photograph and a close-up are helpful, in many instances. Finally, please allow the Master Gardener volunteers the time they need to comprehensively research your question.
