Tomato Gardening Class Scheduled

Posted 1/7/2013

Clark County Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Helen Brown will be presenting a gardening class on February 5 at the Family Resource Center at UMC (1120 Shadow Lane). “All About Tomatoes” is the topic for the class beginning at 10 a.m. The class is free and open to the public, but you must pre-register.

Selecting tomato varieties adapted to Southern Nevada determines both the quality and quantity of tomatoes grown in the yard. Some varieties have the ability to set fruit early in the season before hot weather arrives. Some varieties are less prone to sun burning, cat facing and other problems. This is very important to the tomato grower. Learn which varieties grow well in this area.
