Media contact: Catherine Dehdashti, U of M Extension, (612) 625-0237,

Did you know that you can submit your gardening questions to University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardeners online and get a solid, research-based answer by the next day?

Ask A Master Gardener is staffed by Extension Master Gardeners ready and willing to provide solutions to your gardening problems within 24 hours. Minnesota recently completed training, and currently 71 Master Gardeners are volunteering for Ask A Master Gardener.

How does it work? Simple. Visit Ask A Master Gardener, type in your question, attach a photo if you like and submit. Your question is filtered and sent to a Master Gardener whose criteria (location, topic, etc.) matches your question and location. The Master Gardener volunteer receives your question via email, researches and responds to your email.

Be sure to check out the U of M Extension Garden website for the latest gardening information. Archives of answered gardening questions can also be searched on the national eXtension website.

The next time a gardening problem perplexes you, Ask A Master Gardener.
