MIDDLESEX COUNTY — Do you have questions about planting spring bulbs? Maybe an unfamiliar bug has invaded your house. No matter what season, if you find yourself asking questions on backyard environmental issues, Middlesex County’s Extension office will assist you through the Master Gardener Helpline. Residents of Middlesex County are encouraged to call 1-732-398-5220 with questions on plants, bugs and home conservation practices. Proper ID of insects and disease is the first step to avoiding reliance on pesticides and herbicides.
The helpline is active Mondays through Fridays 10 a.m. – noon. If you cannot pose your question during those hours, leave a message anytime and the MGs will return your call with research into your problem underway. Middlesex Master Gardeners are part of Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County and have a headquarters at the EARTH Center in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, 42 Riva Avenue, South Brunswick.
Trained by Rutgers University experts, Master Gardeners are equipped with the experience and reference materials needed, to provide research-based answers to inquiries about common and uncommon horticulture and wildlife related problems. Residents of other counties can consult their Master Gardeners by looking up Rutgers Cooperative Extension in their phone book’s Blue Pages.
