We just bought a new home in mendota heights with lots of perennial plants, bushes, flowers, etc. We do not know the names of these plants or how to care for them. Is there a master gardener who would be willing to come and name our plants and how to care for them? We are willing to pay for their time. Thank you! Kathy Buri (613-859-5849)

University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardeners are volunteers who do not provide on-site consultation at private homes as it competes with our industry partners.

A great resource for finding a local lawn and landscape professional is the Minnesota Nursery and Landscape Association website: You can also find a certified arborist in your area through the International Society of Aboriculture:
