Welcome
DorrieThe New York Botanical Garden offers plant information services on a limited basis onsite and through telephone, written or faxed inquiries. Questions concerning outdoor and indoor plant culture, maintenance, and plant selection are answered. The service includes information on cultural requirements such as planting, feeding, pruning and propagation. We also offer limited assistance with landscape design inquiries. Plant identification questions require submission of an adequate specimen of the plant in question. Persons seeking plant information from areas outside the southeastern New York region are requested to consult local resources (libraries, botanical gardens, arboretums and the local Cooperative Extension Service) for answers dealing with specific local conditions and environmental issues.

We will also answer questions via e-mail as time and staff resources allow. We ask that requests for information placed through e-mail indicate the location (city and state) of the person making the plant information inquiry.
