Are there master gardeners in the Millcreek Township area?
Rate This FAQ
Master Gardeners are volunteers for the Extension Service. First started in Washington State University in 1972, Extension Agents trained willing and experienced gardeners who provided education and advice, extending research based science advice to the public. The Master Gardener program is in every state associated with their land-grant university and Extension Service. Utah State University Extension began Master Gardener training in the early 1980s based on the model from Washington State. The Master Gardener Volunteer programs are trained and coordinated by USU Extension county offices. In Salt Lake County, we have volunteer programs throughout the county, and though we have 200 Master Gardeners on the roster, many of them are "alumnae" who have gone through the training but are no longer actively volunteering. There are no specific projects in Millcreek and personal information due to privacy issues cannot be release regarding home addresses of Master Gardeners. Active Master Gardeners volunteer at approved Master Gardener projects.

- I have much vinca minor (dwarf periwinkle) planted about 20 years ago as ground cover in my yard. Some is in full sun, some is in part sun/part shade. Some small areas of the vinca (3-4 feet in diameter) in several places in the yard have begun the most recent two Springs looking yellow/pale green, not deep green like the rest of the gardens. Neither have they flowered. A couple of the small yellow/pale green areas e thinned, and some of the plants died. The veins in the leaves of the unhealthy plants are green, but the leaves are yellow/pale green. They have remained thus all summer. They don't turn brown and dry and die. I have treated with fertilizer and snail bait, but neither has had any effect on the unhealthy looking plants. Are these plants deficient in some nutrient? Healthy plants I planted in the bare areas had a hard time establishing but did eventually and have not paled. What should I do? I don't want the problem to spread. The periwinkle has added a great texture to the yard.

- I have recently identified three large plants growing on a stream bed in my yard as water hemlock. From what I have read on-line, this is a very poisonous plant.
