If you do have a question, we often tell people to use their search engine, like Google, to find the topic. To get an answer specific to NC, not California or Florida, add this to your search: site:ncsu.edu.
If that doesn’t get your answers, Ask an Expert has an online form to submit a question and optionally, include pictures. You will select “NC” and “Stokes County” to properly direct the query. The Extension Master Gardener Volunteers assist the Agriculture – Horticulture Extension Agent on this, as well as other support roles. Thanks for visiting us! Commments can be directed to our email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
