UConn Extension Master Gardeners Available for Garden Questions

Do you have questions about your vegetable or flower garden, about something in your yard, or what you’ve seen along a roadside or trail? University of Connecticut Master Gardeners are available to answer your questions!

Stop by or call the Master Gardener Office at University of Connecticut Middlesex County Extension Center on Route 154 in Haddam.

Insects should be secured in containers with lids. Plant specimens can be in a plastic bag or loose. Please bring a clump of turf for lawn questions.

Both healthy and damaged sections of plants help with diagnosis. Also be prepared to describe the growing conditions, fertilizer or pesticide applications, and other environmental questions to help resolve your question.

Master Gardeners also give advice and offer printed information about improving soil, good gardening practices, weed and unknown plant identification, and information about environmental threats such as emerald ash borer, Asian longhorned beetle, and mile-a-minute vine.

The Master Gardener Office at the Middlesex County Extension Center at 1066 Saybrook Road in Haddam is open Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. Stop in at the office, call 860-345-5235, or email.
