Do You Have a Gardening Question?
The Oregon State University Extension Center Plant Clinic is a research-based diagnostic facility staffed by Master Gardener volunteers. The primary mission of the Plant Clinic is educational. We help local residents recognize the nature of their plant or insect problem (diagnosis) by helping them to manage the disease or disorder using proper control methods, including cultural, biological and chemical measures. Emphasis is on prevention of problems by proper management.
To receive the best possible answer to your query, you should:
- Provide Master Gardener volunteers with as much information as possible, regarding your problem or your inquiry,
- Provide a sample of the plant or insect with which you have a concern,
- Provide a photograph of the plant or section of your yard with which you have a concern especially when it is not possible to bring in a physical sample, and
- Allow the Master Gardener volunteers the time that they need to comprehensively research your question.
