The University of Maryland Extension's Cecil County Horticulture educator, Doris Behnke, is available to answer questions "bugging" you about plants and pests in and around your home. Describe your problem by phone or email, or you drop off a sample of your plant or pest problem at the Cecil County Extension Office.
The Cecil County Master Gardener program is composed of local citizens whose common goal is to promote safe, effective and sustainable horticultural practices that build healthy gardens. Master Gardeners are volunteer representatives of the University of Maryland Extension and are supervised and supported by University of Maryland Extension staff. For up-to-date information on the Maryland Master Gardener Program, please visit their site at extension.umd.edu/mg.
