The pandemic continues to keep many of us at home and in our gardens! Our gardens will continue to grow and we will continue to have gardening questions.

To answer those questions, Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteers of Buncombe County are working from home to keep the Garden Helpline open to the public. We are available to respond to your phone calls and emails.  Send an email or leave a voice message at any time and a Master Gardener will respond during the Helpline hours listed below.

The information we provide is consistent with NC State University horticultural research and an integrated pest management approach which includes cultural, mechanical, biological, and chemical methods.

Two ways to contact the Garden Helpline
