Home Gardening

Welcome to the Harford County Master Gardeners web page!

We assist county residents with home gardening and landscaping through several approaches:

  • Classes and workshops are presented on a variety of gardening and lawn care issues such as growing vegetables, canning and composting and fertilizing.
  • Bay Wise certified master gardeners provide information and guidance to help people create healthier gardens and landscapes using sustainable practices.
  • Technical assistance is available from our horticulture specialist for diagnosing home and landscape pest problems including weeds, insects and recommendations for healthy landscapes using native plantings at our plant clinics and farmers markets.
  • Scholarship 2016. Seth is the Master Gardener 2016 High School Scholarship recipient. He will use the money to further his post high school education at the University of Delaware where he will study plant science this fall. When he graduates in 2020 he is planning to pursue a career in the field of agriculture or conservation. He was very grateful for our $500 MG scholarship! 
    Congratulations Seth for being a student of excellence in science and agriculture!
