This is the time of year many gardeners have questions about their plant and soil health.
Master Gardener Linda Hill says the University of Illinois Extension Help Desk is a great resource for all gardening related questions.
Fellow Master Gardener Sharon Smith says the help desk is available Thursdays starting at 9 a.m.
Smith says now is a great time to test your soil to see what nutrients it needs for the coming fall growing season.
You don’t have to go far to find a soil test. Hill says you can just take a sample to the University of Illinois Extension office in Taylorville.
