UI Extension, Payette County horticulture activities are supported by UI Extension, Washington County educator Montessa Young and Canyon County educator Ariel Agenbroad.

Idaho Master Gardeners are not available for house call service to private homeowners. However, we do accept digital photos and plant samples at our office plant clinics and most problems can be diagnosed or solved in this manner. Photos and questions may be emailed at any time during the plant clinic season to We also occasionally send fresh plant samples and photos to one of our UI Extension pathologists for diagnosis.

Volunteer-run, no cost plant health care clinics are held every Thursday June through September from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m at the UI Extension, Payette County office.
