Bring us a sample

Bringing a plant or insect sample? For the health of our nursery, all samples must arrive in a plastic baggie or other closed container. If the problem is manifesting on leaves, please bring samples of both diseased and healthy leaves, if possible.

Bringing a lawn sample? Please bring a sample of sod approximately 8″x8″x2″ deep. The sample needs to include both affected turf and green/live grass. (If Take All Root Rot is suspected, accurate diagnosis requires live grass.) Please bring your sample in a sturdy box or tub that won’t easily spill.
