Horticulture Programs

University of Wyoming Extension


Extension Horticulture at the University of Wyoming offers technical expertise in the following areas:

Lawn & Garden

Consumer Horticulture

Consumer horticulture issues can be handled through county University of Wyoming Extension offices. Each county office has horticultural reference information on hand ranging from fact sheets to on-site problem diagnostics (services vary by county). Each county office can also assist in sending soil, plant, insect, and disease samples to appropriate laboratories on the University of Wyoming campus for testing and diagnostics. There are usually fees and forms associated with these services. Consumer horticulture issues can also be handled by Master Gardeners in some counties.

The University of Wyoming Extension horticulture program offers an array of fact sheets, some of which are available on the UW Extension web site. Here are links to several that are currently available:

Commercial Horticulture

The green industries in Wyoming are healthy, varied, and thriving. Within the "green industries" umbrella are such businesses as garden centers, nurseries, sod producers, landscape contractors, greenhouses, tree and lawn care companies, and many others.
