This year, for the first time, The Penn State Extension Philadelphia Master Gardeners will provide answers to email questions all year round. The Horticulture hotline (HortLine) is a free service for residents of Philadelphia. Master Gardeners are ready to answer questions pertaining to the appropriate selection of vegetables, ornamental plants, pesticides, soil, plant identification, pruning, compost, mulch, insect control, plant diseases and more. In winter we expect questions about houseplant care and diseases and planning for the 2013 outdoor growing season.
To contact the Philadelphia HortLine (from November until March)
- E-mail PhiladelphiaExt@psu.edu with "Hortline" in the subject line. Please give your question, name and contact phone number. You can include a photo if you wish.
