The Gardening Portal at NC State University provides access to a wealth of information, events and resources for gardeners in North Carolina. Managed by the State Urban Horticulture Specialist and Cooperative Extension Horticulture Agents throughout the state, it is your doorway to guidance about successfully growing vegetables, herbs, fruits, flowers and ornamentals in your landscape.
Whether you are growing at the coast or the mountains; at sea level or 4,000 ft; in red clay or sand, there is information specific to your needs. Whether you want to create a wildlife habitiat or a lawn you will find sustainable strategies for success.
North Carolina Cooperative Extension partners with communities to deliver education and technology that enrich the lives, land and economy of North Carolinians.
The information in this portal is based on research from NC State University Departments of Crop Science, Entomology, Horticultural Science, Plant Pathology, Soil Science, and Youth, Family and Community Sciences as well as from other Universities.
