Do you have a question? Ask Gardenline

Gardenline is a free help service offered by the Plant Sciences department at USask during the growing season.

Gardenline is closed for the season and will re-open in April 2024. 

Every question you send to Gardenline must include a significant amount of information.

How we use your information:

  • Your personal information such as your name, contact information and location is never shared with anyone.
  • Your location information is required because location matters when it comes to plant diagnosis, plant or insect identification, plant recommendations and many other aspects of gardening.
  • We use aggregate information about location for program planning and funding purposes. This aggregate information is never linked to individuals.
Once we have your information about your problem, we may contact you for photos.

You will not be able to submit photos when you submit your question.

Photos are extremely helpful. If we need photos, we will contact you by email with instructions about how to send them. Tips for submitting good photos:

  • Use high resolution photos so that we can zoom in to see detail. (maximum size of 5MB each)
  • Photos should be in focus.
  • Send a maximum of 5 photos.
  • For small subjects such as insects or native plants, it helps to include an object in the photo such as a ruler, coin or pen to give an indication of scale.
