Do you have gardening questions? We have answers!

| 1 Comment

An important goal of the Master Gardener program is to answer the public's questions about gardening using University research-based information. Find answers to your questions several ways - whatever suits you!

By email: Use the national eXtension Ask an Expert tool. Submit your question anytime - images too! - and a University of Minnesota Master Gardener will answer it via email within 48 hours!

Online: The Extension Garden website is filled with useful information, including diagnostic tools, Extension publications, Yard & Garden News, and more.

By phone: Many Minnesota counties have garden hotlines managed by local Master Gardeners. Find yours. If your county doesn't have a hotline, you may also call the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Yard & Garden Line at (952) 443-1426 and leave a message. A Master Gardener will return your call.

We have been offered a donation of several outdoor plants for our congregation's front lawn. Before we start digging them up, transporting and planting them, we are wondering if we have enough time with the weather getting so cool at night. The plants available include a variety of tall grasses, which I think are pretty hardy, as well as sedum, hosta and yellow stella d'oro.

Please let me know your thoughts. If we don't get them, they will likely be ripped out by the new homeowners, but in order for us to retrieve them, I have to round up a group to help, and I am not sure it's worth it if this isn't a good time to plant.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
