Master Gardeners restart in-person plant answer clinics

Got a garden conundrum? Local gardening experts are here to help.

The WSU Extension Clallam County Master Gardeners’ plant answer clinics are back to in-person meetings starting this month, set for 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. the first and third Monday of each month — except for holidays — through October.

The next clinic is set for Aug. 16.

Clinics are hosted in the lobby of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles. Questions may still be submitted online by emailing to

Plant answer clinics are offered to the public to help in answering gardening questions and solving insect and plant disease problems in home landscapes and gardens. Local Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand to identify plants, address plant and pest problems and to help clients find research-based information for their gardens.

The clinics are free and open to home gardeners. No appointments are necessary, but participants are asked to wear masks and follow social distancing recommendations while in the courthouse.

People with questions are asked to bring in bagged samples of healthy and damaged areas of plants, including stem, leaves, flowers, fruits or cones, and living specimens of garden pests.

Emails should include detailed pictures when necessary.

The Clallam County Master Gardeners, a cooperative program between Washington State University and Clallam County, provides up-to-date information on sustainable gardening practices. Volunteers also address environmental and social priorities such as water conservation, the protection of water quality, reducing the impact of invasive species and healthy living through gardening.
