Have a Gardening Question?

Connect with us online, on the phone, and by email!

Right now the quickest way to reach a Master Gardener or Extension professional is with OSU Extension's Ask An Expert service.

Also, you might find an answer in the gardening publications in the Extension catalog or in the other gardening resources pages on the Extension website.


The Linn and Benton County offices of the OSU Extension Service receives thousands of requests for home gardening information annually. To provide this information, Extension enlists the assistance of Master Gardener volunteers.

To receive the best possible answer to your gardening question, please provide as much information as possible. If possible email photo(s) of the plant (or insect, spider, etc.) 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. CLICK HERE for more tips on getting the most out of your consultation.
