Ask a Master Gardener

Knox County Master Gardeners are available to answer your questions related to horticulture: 

  • Is your garden being attacked by disease or insects? 
  • Are your azaleas dying? 
  • Do you want to know when's the best time to plant grass in east Tennessee? 
  • When's the best time to prune? 

Master Gardeners are available to answer your gardening questions each week, mid-February through October. 

If you're a Knox County Resident, just call our office at 215-2340 or visit our local farmer's market (see calendar) to Ask a Master Gardener!
