Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, October 3, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: tree selection and care. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

Trees are some of the largest, and can be, the most expensive plant material you’ll add to your landscape. Knowing what trees do the best in the Mojave Desert is only part of the story; knowing where to put them, how to plant them and how to care for them can help you prevent some costly mistakes. Laura Eisenberg will teach you how to pick a landscape tree and how to care for it so it will become the landscape centerpiece you knew it could be. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. There is a $25 fee per class which covers class materials.

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

The last Gardening in Small Places workshop for this year is November 21, Growing fruit at home.
