The program includes a site visit by trained Master Gardener volunteers who will evaluate and answer site specific questions regarding your property, such as:

  • What plants will grow well in my area of Chesterfield County?
  • What plants are on my property and how do I take care of them?
  • How can I create habitat for beneficial wildlife like birds & bees?
