Gardening Hotline is Open!

While all Durham County offices remain closed for now, you can still get your gardening questions answered by a Durham County Extension Master Gardener Volunteer.  Yes, even volunteers can work from home!

As Extension master gardener volunteers, our mission is to answer questions specific to your gardening needs — and not just questions about growing heirloom vegetables, or prized roses, or rare trees. Master Gardeners are present to answer any and all of your questions pertaining to indoor and outdoor gardening in Durham County. You can expect a research-based, unbiased answer within a reasonable time frame. Answers are often accompanied by links to additional Internet resources.
