Ask an Expert – Master Gardener Help Desk
* Note: Until we resume our office schedules, the Help Desk volunteers who answer the telephones will not be available. Please send your questions to our virtual Help Desk volunteers through our Ask the Help Desk form. During this time, email replies will be preferred. *
Let us help you with your gardening questions. The El Paso Master Gardener Help Desk, a free service for the public, is open Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and we’ll be happy to assist you. When you phone the Help Desk (915-771-2354), you will talk with a volunteer who will provide research-based horticultural information. If a Master Gardener is not available when you call, please leave a message and you will be contacted as soon as possible. Or, you may fill out and submit the form below.
Descriptions of the plant in question or problem are more helpful if they include some background details, information about its growth or decline, and plant care practices you’ve been using or have tried. All photos are appreciated and are especially useful if they show the plant in flower, if possible, as that aids in identification.
