OREGON — The Master Gardener helpline is now open.


Each year, the Master Gardeners receive questions from across the region. Calls are then logged in order to identify trends in disease issues or pest populations.


The helpline can answer homeowner’s questions regarding trees, shrubs, perennials, insects and lawns with research-based information from the University of Illinois.


Questions may be submitted by leaving a message or filling out an online form.


To submit a question: 815-235-4125; go.illinois.edu/MGHelpline.
