Ask A Master Gardener

The Master Gardeners of York County (MGYC) are available to answer your questions related to lawn and garden problems.  Our dedicated hotline at 803-324-4177 is open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays August to November.  Or drop in at the Glencairn Garden Bigger House, 725 Crest Street, Rock Hill.  We'll greet you out on the porch, abiding by social distancing guidelines and wearing face coverings.

You'll also find master gardeners circulating in the garden to offer guidance on gardening challenges during these same hours.  Look for members wearing the green 'Ask A Master Gardener' vests with the MGYC logo.

Stop by the Bigger House on Fridays to pick up a soil sample test kit for the nominal fee of $6.00.  Soil sampling and testing provide a scientific basis for maintaining optimum soil fertility levels and proper soil pH values to help attain maximum plant growth and lawn health.  If we miss you on Fridays, we invite you to submit any inquiries to or leave a message at the hotline phone number.
