Plant Answer Clinic
Happily, gardening is one thing that has not been cancelled due to COVID19. Although the clinic is closed, we have volunteers who will research your problem from home and get back to you via email. They may also call you to ask additional questions or get more information.
Do you have a plant eaten-up by bugs or diseases? Maybe you have a plant or weed you cannot identify? Do you have a problem area in your yard and need advice on what to plant?
NOTE: We are receiving a larger than normal volume of questions. Our certified volunteers are working hard to answer your questions in a timely manner. We appreciate your patience and your desire for wanting accurate gardening/composting/recycling information. We look forward to serving you.
That’s where the WSU Master Gardener volunteers of Thurston County can help.
Email the clinic with your questions.
Please include the following information in your email:
- Your name and phone number
- Photos including both a close up of the problem area and a picture of the entire plant showing where it is in your landscape
- Name of the plant
- Age of the plant
- When was it planted in this location?
- Approximate size
- Detailed description of the problem and anything you think may have contributed to the current problem.
