Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, January 23 for a workshop on Gardening in Small Places: Pruning from 8 a.m. to noon. The class, taught by Dr. Angela O’Callaghan, is designed to show you the what, when, where, why and how of pruning your landscape to keep your plants healthy and looking like you want them to.

This hands-on class gives you a chance to get a feel for pruning by letting you try your skills on our landscape before doing your own. If you want to get some hands on experience, please bring your pruners, gloves and eye protection. Please do not purchase pruners for this class. One of the topics is tools and we want you to discuss what to purchase before you do. We have tools you can try out; however, bring your own gloves. Topics for the pruning workshop cover pruning fruit trees, ornamentals and desert plants. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited and pre-registration is required. There is a $25 fee for each class which includes class materials.

To register for the workshop held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), email or call Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573. Register online through Eventbrite.

Upcoming Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are February 20, vegetables, March 19, composting, April 9, irrigation, May 7, problem solving and June 11, organic gardening.
