Are you growing a garden for the first time? Not sure why your tomatoes seem stunted?
Or maybe you’re an experienced gardener and your cucumbers have always grown beautifully, but this year the leaves are wilting and the plants are drying up? Do you have a perennial or tree or shrub that is looking sickly or being attacked by something? Not sure who to ask about these problems??
The Seneca County Cornell Cooperative Extension (SCCCE) Master Gardeners can help you find answers. And they will be at the Edith B. Ford Memorial Library in Ovid on Thursday night, July 12th from 6:30 to 7:30PM and then again at the Seneca Falls Library on Thursday night, July 26th from 6:30 to 7:30PM.

If you’ve found an insect you think is the culprit or if you’re just curious what it is, bring it in a container, dead or alive, and we’ll identify it. Bring the leaves, stem or affected part of the problem plant and we’ll try to diagnose the disease or pest. Even if we can’t come up with an answer on the spot, we can take it back to our office and work on it until we have an answer. We’ll provide you the information to help correct the problem or be prepared before it strikes next season.
There will also be information available about creating a root cellar to help you store and preserve all of the great bounty you have grown (or purchased at a local farmers market!).
If you have an urgent issue that can’t wait until July 12th or 26th the Master Gardener Hot Line is staffed by a master gardener to answer gardening and landscape related questions on most Mondays and Thursdays from 9AM to 11AM. Call 315-539-9251 or stop in to the SCCCE offices at 308 Main Street Shop Centre, third floor and we’ll help you solve your gardening and landscape issues.
So don’t forget to keep July 12th and July 20th marked on your calendar so if an issue arises in your yard or garden you can stop by one of the libraries between 6:30 and 7:30PM and get your questions answered. There is a fee of $5 for the Ovid event, but the Seneca Falls event is free of charge thanks to the Friends of the Library.
