Have a gardening question? Ask a master gardener in the new ‘Ask the Master’ column in The Lake News. In conjunction with Master Gardeners at Penn State Extension, the column will respond to reader questions once or twice a month depending on the season and number of requests for information.
Master Gardeners answer questions on a variety of gardening topics such as plant selection, composting, soil improvement, pest control, vegetable and flower gardening, pruning, water drainage in yards, water collection, native perennials, and more.
To receive the best possible answer to your gardening question, please provide as much information as possible. If available, include a photograph that captures the plant or section of your yard with which you have a question or concern. A wide angle photograph and a close up are helpful, in many instances.
Questions for the master gardener should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
