About Our Lawn & Garden Programs

The Consumer Horticulture program is designed to assist homeowners with needs related to ornamental plants, vegetable gardens, fruit plants, as well as pest prevention and management.

When problems arise,  samples of plants with insect or disease issues may be brought to the office for analysis. Please bring a sample that includes both a healthy and damaged tissues. Enclose samples in a container or bag. Digital pictures can also be emailed to paige_patterson@ncsu.edu. In some situations an agent can make a home visit when we are unable to provide a solution through sample and photo analysis. We can also access your soil reports online and assist with interpreting them.

The Master Gardener Volunteer Program is a component of the consumer horticulture program. Interested individual are trained through an intensive 40 hour course, and then become certified once they complete the course, pass the final exam, and complete 40 hours of volunteer service. Volunteers will then help Extension Agents to educate others in the community through various volunteer activities and by assisting in our office.

If you have a question you’d like to ask an Extension Master Gardener volunteer, you can email wataugamastergardener@gmail.com. You can also follow our local Master Gardener facebook page for information on all things gardening related.
