Master Gardener Plant Clinics

Ever have a favorite plant suddenly start looking sick? Or maybe you’ve discovered a new plant and want to know what it is? You may not realize it, but expert help may be right around the corner.

Many county Extension offices offer plant clinics staffed by Master Gardener volunteers trained to identify plants and many of the pests and diseases that affect them.

Some plant clinics take place at the county Extension offices, while others happen at local garden centers, garden festivals, or other community events.

To find out if your county Extension office hosts plant clinics, look up the phone number at or in the county blue pages of your phone book under “Extension.”
