The Vancouver Island Master Gardeners offer accurate and up-to-date advice at nurseries, garden centres, plant sales, farmers’ markets, garden shows and garden tours on Vancouver Island throughout the gardening season. We also participate in speaking engagements on garden topics at newcomers groups, and garden club meetings, and write articles for local newspapers and newsletters.
The 2017 season is now finished, but we will post information, on this page, about our 2018 schedule as soon as it is completed - check back in early 2018.
- Phone in direct on Tuesdays between 1:00-3:00 to talk to the Master Gardeners live. Phone number: 250-752-0312
- Leave a message with your question for the Master Gardeners at any other time during the week and we will call you back with our answer. Phone number: 250-752-0312
- Email GardeningAdvice.MilnerGardens@shaw.ca with your question and we will email you back on the next Tuesday.
- If you have a sample you would like us to look at (plant ID sample, pest sample, leaf, etc...), please fill out the form on this link, put the sample in a plastic ziplock bag, and drop both form and bag off at the Milner Gardens & Woodland Welcome Centre during open hours Saturday to 2:00 on Tuesday.
