For many years, the Horticulture and Home Pest News website was the go-to website for home gardening information from Iowa State. The thousands of articles on everything from vegetables, to lawns, to trees, to houseplants, and everything in between now can now be found on the new Yard and Garden website just launched in March of 2024..  

The website now features content organized by topic area and a fresh new look that works very well on mobile devices (an important thing given 70% of all visits to the website are on mobile devices). With this change in look comes a new name and web address: All of these changes should make it even easier to find the information you are looking for from Iowa State Extension.  

Click below to view the new and improved website and don’t forget to update your bookmarks (although don’t worry, even if you don’t update all your links everything from the old website will redirect you to the new one!). And while you’re there, don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter. Both of these great resources will keep you up-to-date on all things gardening in Iowa.
