Welcome to the Albuquerque Area Extension Master Gardener Website!
Who are Master Gardeners? We are community volunteers trained in horticulture by the New Mexico State University Cooperative Extension Service. We can answer both general and specific questions about all aspects of growing things.
Have questions about gardening?
We can help you understand the science of the various soils in our area and tell you what grows best here. We can help with those pesky entomology, or bug, problems. We have up-to-date information about plant botany, plant diseases, growing fruits and vegetables, caring for your lawn, and growing roses. Are you interested in xeriscaping? We have information about that as well. We are here to help you develop gardens that will thrive and be beautiful in our arid landscape.
Look through our frequently asked questions (FAQs). Explore our resources. If you can’t find an answer, please ask us a question. Someone will contact you to help you solve your problem. Or feel free to call the Master Gardener Hotline at 292-7144 or 243-1386 between March and October to speak to a Master Gardener in person.
