Master Gardeners Hotline
Have questions about gardening, trees, or plants?
There is a free source for answers—the Master Gardeners Hotline. Master Gardeners are volunteers who have received extensive education and use their experience and the resources of New Mexico State University (NMSU) to answer YOUR questions.
How do you contact the Hotline?
From March 1 through the end of October you can call the Master Gardener Hotline at (505) 243-1386 (from 9AM-12PM and 12:30-3:30PM) on weekdays (except holidays), to speak to a Master Gardener. You can also meet in person with Master Gardeners on weekdays (except holidays) from 9AM-12PM and 12:30-3:30PM at the NMSU-Bernalillo County Cooperative Extension Service office at 1510 Menaul Blvd Ext NW, Albuquerque, NM 87107.
