Free Home Gardening Helpline

  • Email us at anrmgsb@ucanr.edu. This is the best way to submit photos along with your questions.
  • Or, call us at 805-893-3485. Please clearly state your phone number and email address so that we may respond to you in a timely manner.
In your request—
  • Include your name, phone number and city (plant advice depends on local conditions!).
  • Describe the problem in detail. Include the name of the plant if known, when the problem began, and cultivation history such as watering, fertilizing, pruning, pesticides, etc. 
  • Send photographs, if appropriate. Pictures are worth a thousand words! Pictures with lots of visible information are worth more.
