Below is a list of local, regional, and national resources for gardeners:
- Every county in the US has a Cooperative Extension Service. These folks are available to help both farmers and home gardeners. To find a contact for your Extension office, simply do an internet search for “your county name” and extension service. A great local resource.
- Many Botanical Gardens and Arboretums have resources for the home gardener. Check out this list by state: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_botanical_gardens_and_arboretums_in_the_United_States
- At the national level, the United States National Arboretum has a nice reference page for home gardeners. Follow this link: http://www.usna.usda.gov/Gardens/gardeningr.html
- My absolute favorite online plant reference, Missouri Botanical Garden, also has information for home gardeners: http://www.missouribotanicalgarden.org/gardens-gardening.aspx
