The Home & Garden Information Center and The Plant & Pest Diagnostic Clinic

February 27, 2018 - Posted in Home by Sean Flynn

On “Making It Grow”, we always make references to the wealth of information Clemson has available for the citizens of the state. For our featured segment, we take a behind the scenes tour of two of these places – The Clemson Extension Home and Garden Information Center and The Clemson University Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic (formally the Plant Problem Clinic).  The HGIC provides information on landscaping, gardening, plant health, household pests, food safety and preservation, nutrition, physical activity and health via a toll-free line and a searchable database of factsheets. The Clemson University Plant and Pest Diagnostic Clinic is a multi-disciplinary program which provides diagnoses and recommendations for plant and turf problems, nematodes, weeds, environmental issues, nutritional deficiencies and insect pests of plants. Samples may be submitted through County Extension offices or directly to the laboratory by filling out specific forms. To learn more, Host Amanda McNulty visits with Dr. Joey Williamson of the HGIC and Meg Williamson of the PPDC as they give her a behind the scenes tour of how they help the citizens of South Carolina with their gardening problems.
