PORT ANGELES — The WSU Extension Clallam County Master Gardeners’ plant answer in-person clinics are back.
The clinics will start this month. They are set for 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the first and third Monday of each month — except for holidays — through October.
Clinics are hosted in the lobby of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Questions may still be submitted online by emailing [email protected]
Plant answer clinics are offered to the public to help answer gardening questions and to solve insect and plant disease problems in home landscapes and gardens.
Local Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand to identify plants, address plant and pest problems, and help clients find research-based information for their gardens.
The clinics are free and open to home gardeners. No appointments are necessary, but participants are asked to wear masks and follow social distancing recommendations while in the courthouse.
People with questions are asked to bring in bagged samples of healthy and damaged areas of plants, including stem, leaves, flowers, fruits or cones, and living specimens of garden pests.
Emails should include detailed pictures when applicable.
The Clallam County Master Gardeners, a cooperative program between Washington State University and Clallam County, provides up-to-date information on sustainable gardening practices.
Volunteers also address environmental and social priorities such as water conservation, the protection of water quality, reducing the impact of invasive species and healthy living through gardening.
