LET US HELP WITH YOUR GARDENING QUESTIONS!

Master Gardeners are on hand to help you with issues in your home and back yard. Our Plant Clinic is stocked with a large library of resources, modern technology, and motivated, trained, and experienced Master Gardeners.  It helps us help you if you can send pictures to support your questions… branches of a sick plant, insects that you’ve trapped, photos, etc.

Master Gardeners Plant Clinic
The public is encouraged to contact our diagnostic clinic by telephone, email, or in person. We can be found in our clinic (see below) and at the Downtown Yakima Farmer’s Market each Sunday morning through the end of October. For better identification, you are encouraged to bring a sample of the damaged plant in a sealed Zip Lock bag.
