|A Master Gardener helpline sponsored by the University of Missouri Extension has been set up to provide answers for lawn or garden questions. It will be manned on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. through August 4. This service helps satisfy the volunteer service commitment Master Gareners make upon completing their horticulture training course offered by the extension center.
To contact a Master Gardener, call (417) 358-2158 or stop by the Jasper County University of Missouri Extension Center in the basement of the Jasper County Courthouse in Carthage. More information about the Master Gardener program also is available when calling.
