Strafford County Master Gardeners Association is one of ten Master Gardener groups in the State of New Hampshire, working under the auspices of the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension. We strive to assist our neighbors by providing education and support for a variety of gardening topics. This blog is intended as a means to enhance communication with our fellow gardenening enthusiasts.
