Louisa Master Gardeners

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

During the early part of 2010, the Central Virginia Master Gardeners completed an analysis of the questions most frequently asked by Louisa County residents calling into the Horticulture Help Desk or when visiting our Plant Clinics held at local farmers markets and other venues within the county.  They fall into three categories – plant or insect identification, problem diagnosis, or request for general information.  This section contains general information about the most commonly asked ‘general information’ questions.  In addition, at the end of each section we have included the web links of other helpful websites containing information about the subject.  Please visit this section regularly as we will continue to add to it.
