Welcome to the Brandon University HORTLINE

Haroldjonasson5spruceThe Brandon University HortLine — the Horticultural Hotline — is now  in  operation for the summer of 2013. The Hort-Line will be available at CKLQ radio Tuesday mornings 9 to 10am for local green thumbs to call for help with plant, tree and lawn problems. The contacts at CKLQ are 725-2525 or 1-888-221-0880. E-mails may be sent to Hortline@Brandonu.ca and copied to qcountry@cklq.mb.ca. The show can also be heard at CKLQ.com. The program can also be viewed on WCGtv Brandon.

Digital photographs of problem plants have proven to be an excellent tool in assisting with the diagnosis of problems. These may be sent to the above e-mail addresses. With the technical hardware now available we can view live specimens or digital photographs on the Hortline Show.

In addition  specimens may be brought or sent  to the University for inspection. They can be dropped off at Room 3-11, on the third floor of the Brodie Science Building at the corner of 18th Street and Louise Avenue. Samples and specimens can also be mailed to:
