Red rose drawingCooperative Extension and the South Valley Rose Society are collaborating and offering educational meetings throughout the winter/spring. All meetings are free and open to the public. The February 27 meeting topic is:  Soil, soil additives, fertilizers & irrigation offered by Frank J Rausher, Certified Horticulturist, Star Nursery.

What is the Las Vegas Valley soil and soil drainage like? Are soil nutrients available? If not, what soil additives and fertilizers can be added? Understanding Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium (NPK) functions and what the three corresponding numbers that are found on packages mean is important.

All of the details–times, location and future topics–can be found on Cooperative Extension’s website.
