Have a Gardening Question?

Got gardening questions? We've got answers!

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. 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.
