Have you ever looked out at your yard and decided that it really needs help? And have you ever felt that it was hopeless to try to do anything about it? Probably most people have.
A good way to begin to understand garden problems would be to call or come by the UF/IFAS Master Gardener Plant Clinic in Osceola County. The Master Gardeners have set up the Plant Clinics for this purpose. There, you will receive Research based information at no cost on how to deal with these problems. Or if you prefer doing things by email, you can send us your question that way. Any photos of the damage would also be a great help. If you are coming into the office, any specimens (leaves, twigs, insects, 1 foot section of grass) will be helpful.
We now have two locations, our main location is in Extension Services the address is 1921 Kissimmee Valley Lane, Kissimmee, FL 34744 (in Osceola Heritage Park), and Master Gardeners are there to assist you Monday thru Friday from 9am to 3pm. And now we have a new location in the Poinciana area, we are in the Mary Jane Arlington Gym & Aquatic Center located at 625 Country Club Drive, Poinciana every Thursday from 10am to 1pm. There is no charge for our advice, and all the Master Gardeners are volunteers that have gone thru an extensive training by the University of Florida. If you have any questions and can’t go to any of our locations feel free to call us or email us your questions, the phone number is 321-697-3000 and the email address is email@example.com
If the Master Gardeners aren’t available to help, Eva Pabon is the Residential Horticulture Agent and she will be happy to assist you.
