All your gardening questions can be answered this summer with the Johnson County K-State Extension Master Gardener Hotline.
Advice on lawn, flowers, gardening, trees, shrubs and houseplants is available over the phone at 913-715-7050 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday, excluding holidays. When calling the hotline for assistance, be prepared to supply as much information as possible. The more data you can provide, the easier it is for the trained Extension Master Gardener volunteer to assist.
You can also bring in insects and plants in person for advice at the Extension Office, 11811 South Sunset Drive, Olathe. Be sure to bring in a large enough sample of the plant in question. A large sample of bugs is not required – only a few.
Residents also can email their questions at firstname.lastname@example.org. When emailing, it is also a good idea to attach low-resolution photos to help see the plant problem.
