Call Master Gardener Hotline Direct for 
Solutions to Lawn, Gardening or Insect Problems

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — If you have a lawn or gardening problem, who are you going to call for unbiased, research-based solutions? Trained volunteers that are working the Master Gardeners of Greene County Hotline that is who.

These volunteers have answers to most home gardening questions.

Visitors are always welcome to come in personally to the Hotline Room located in the west end of the Springfield Botanical Center at 2400 S. Scenic Avenue in Springfield.

Master Gardeners provide educational programs, work in demonstration gardens, answer horticulture questions from members of the public and assist with various other community projects.

Soil Testing

Whether you are planting a garden, an orchard or thinking of hay and pasture, a soil test can help you know what you will need to amend your soil for the best results possible. Call our office for more information at 417-455-9500. Cost is $20 per sample.

Soil testing provides an estimate of the plant-available nutrients in the soil and is an essential tool for a sound fertilization program. Periodic soil testing will help to correct nutrient deficiencies, avoid excess fertilizer applications and maintain a healthy lawn, garden or cropland.
