Master Gardeners share plant knowledge with Camano Residents
Master Gardeners were available to answer gardening questions during their first “Ask a Master Gardener” plant clinic at the Camano Plaza Ace Hardware last Saturday. Master Gardeners receive college-level training by WSU in exchange for sharing that information with the public. Participants reported that there were a constant flow of questions, interesting specimens and gorgeous weather! A good time was had by all.
You can ask your questions of Master Gardeners at any of the remaining plant clinics scheduled this summer on Camano and Whidbey Islands.
