Show off your award winning roses at the fall rose show
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension assists rose show participants
If you believe you have award-winning prize roses in your garden, plan to attend the first-ever rose show this fall. On Nov. 18, in partnership with University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, the South Valley Rose Society is hosting their First American Rose Society (ARS) Rose Show at Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center.
The rose society is offering free, open to the public, training classes in preparation for their fall rose show. The Saturday prep classes are from 8 a.m. to noon.
On July 15, Master Gardener Marie Kaplan will discuss rose arrangement. Kaplan is also an ARS judge and blue ribbon arranger. On Aug. 26 and Sept. 9, Master Gardeners and ARS Consulting Rosarians Christina Ropeter and Judith Kafantaris will review the content and rules for the Rose Horticulture Section and on Oct. 21, Larry Kaplan, blue ribbon photography winner, will review the content and rules for the Nov. rose show.
The classes and the rose show are at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. For more information, email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555.
