Master Gardeners are volunteers trained by the University of Minnesota Extension to answer all your home gardening questions. Master Gardeners will provide you with the latest university research-based information. What you won’t get is untested, unproven or potentially dangerous solutions. Be patient though, if we don’t know the answer, we’ll ask to get back with you so we can go find the best answer for your question.
