Max, I had to laugh when I read that. Long before anyone had dreamed up the
"master gardener" idea to take the load off the county agents, I visited my
then local county agent for some advice. I was having trouble with fusarium
killing my larkspurs. When I asked him for suggestions, he told me to grow
marigolds instead. And he evidently thought that was an eminently
professional and appropriate answer.

I left grumbling about the waste of taxpayer money.
