Are you growing a garden for the first time?  Not sure why your tomatoes seem stunted? Or maybe you’re an experienced gardener and your cucumbers have always grown beautifully, but this year the leaves are wilting and the plants are drying up?  Do you have a flower or tree or shrub that is looking sickly or being attacked by something?  Not sure who to ask about these problems??  

The Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension (SCCCE) Master Gardeners can help you find answers. And they will be at the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library in Ovid the fourth Tuesday of each month April to September from 6:30PM to 7:30PM.  First session is Tuesday, April 28th and the workshops with conclude on Tuesday, September 22nd.  

If you’ve found an insect you think is the culprit or if you’re just curious what it is, bring it in a container, dead or alive, and we’ll identify it. Bring the leaves, stem or affected part of the problem plant and we’ll try to diagnose the disease or pest.  Even if we can’t come up with an answer on the spot, we can take it back to our office and work on it until we have an answer. We’ll provide you the information to help correct the problem or be prepared before it strikes next season.

 If you have an urgent issue that can’t wait until an upcoming Tuesday session, the Master Gardener Hot Line is available to answer gardening and landscape related questions.  Call 315-539-9251 or stop in to the SCCCE offices at 308 Main Street Shop Centre, third floor and we’ll help you solve your gardening and landscape issues. 

So don’t forget to mark the fourth Tuesday of each month on your calendar so if an issue arises in your yard or garden you can stop by the Ovid library between 6:30 and 7:30PM and get your questions answered. No need to register, just drop by and ask your questions!
