It’s spring! For gardeners, that means a new chance for all things growing.
The Fairfax County Master Gardeners program is available to help troubleshoot plant issues, guide plant selection, conduct soil tests and help address pest problems.
Here’s how to access their free services:
- Contact the Master Gardener Help Desk, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – noon. Phone: 703-324-8556; Email: HelpDesk@FairfaxGardening.org. Please clearly explain your question or problem, and gardeners will conduct any needed research before getting back to you.
- Attend a plant clinic. See a list of 2023 county plant clinic locations. Plant clinics begin April 15 and run through September.
- Check out the Fairfax County Master Gardeners website, which has links to articles, a monthly gardening calendar and more.
The Fairfax County Master Gardners Association is part of NCS’ Virginia Cooperative Extension program. The Fairfax County Office of Virginia Cooperative Extension brings the resources of Virginia's land-grant universities - Virginia Tech and Virginia State University - to the people of the commonwealth.
