Our Help Desk is staffed 50 weeks of the year, Monday – Thursday 9 a.m. – Noon.
Currently, we are communicating through email ONLY: ccmg@ucanr.edu.
In your email request:

  • Include your name and city (plant advice depends on local conditions!)
  • Describe the problem in detail. Include the name of the plant if known, when the problem began, and cultivation history such as watering, fertilizing, pruning, pesticides, etc.
  • Send photographs, if appropriate.

Or in case you'd like to do your own research, our UC Master Gardeners Program of Contra Costa County as well as the UC Division of Agriculture and natural Resource (UC ANR) websites can help you "create sustainable gardens and landscapes — from growing food to building fire-safe landscapes and making every drop of water count."
