Looking for help with your gardening questions? Here are the options!
1. In-person MGV Lawn and Garden Diagnostic Clinics
From June through August 2022 Clark County Master GArdener Volunteers will be on hand at Snyder Park Gardens and Arboretum near the clubhouse to answer your questions and take a look at samples. They will be there on MOnday evenings from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. and Tuesday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
you can bring a plant sample (make it a great sample so that we can give you a good diagnosis). It should be a sample that shows transition from live to dead. WE can't do autopsies on dead twigs - we won't be able to tell you anything! For more information on sample, click here. This is the C. Wayne Ellet Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic website - see below for another option. Click on the left side to learn what type of sample to bring. If it's raining, we will be in the clubhouse or the Wingert Tossey Pavilion.
