The community garden tour is Sunday, June 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. at The Kitchen Table, 7034 S. Klondike Road in Rochelle.

Spring brings change and new growth. Gardens are being planted and we begin to spend more time in our outdoor space around our homes. You may have noticed a change in your landscape, grass or trees as things are blooming after the winters rest. 

The Ogle County Master Gardeners are trained volunteers through the University of Illinois Extension Master Gardener program. As a service to our community, they offer a free service answering home yard and garden questions at their Horticulture Help Desk. 

Master Gardeners provide research-based answers to your questions and take the time to find the information you need for your specific circumstance. They research topics on insects, trees, shrubs, plants, vegetables, fruits, gardens, lawns, and more.

The Help Desk is open from 9 a.m. to Noon, Monday, Wednesday and Friday throughout the growing season (April–Sept.). The Master Gardeners can be reached by calling 815-732-2191, emailing in your question to uiemg-ogle@illinois.edu, or by stopping at the office located at 521 W. Pines Road, Suite 10 in Oregon.

When calling, emailing or stopping by, the volunteers will ask you diagnostic questions to help them better understand your situation as they begin their research. They do not make house calls. Clients are encouraged to email or bring in photos or drop off samples of their troubled plants, trees, or shrubs. Call for tips on how to collect samples.
