Rutgers Master Gardener Program

Under the leadership of Rutgers Cooperative Extension, Rutgers Master Gardeners of Morris County provide assistance with home gardening questions to residents of Morris County.

Rutgers Master Gardener volunteers are trained to diagnose common plant and pest problems, suggest appropriate cultural practices and advise as to the best care for the home landscape and garden.

Rutgers Master Gardener volunteers answer "non-commercial" community gardening questions through these services:

  • Helpline - Residents phone in their questions by calling 973-285-8305

Helpline hours of operation (April thru October) are:

    Monday through Friday 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
    Tuesday and Thursday 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

    November thru March voicemails and e-mails are addressed weekly
