University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners—for the 11th year--will offer a series of free classes at Acacia Park in April. Classes are offered in partnership with the City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department, and are published in “Henderson Happenings.” All classes are taught by Cooperative Extension volunteer Master Gardener instructors and begin at 9 a.m.

April 9 — Water in the Desert: Are you giving your plants enough water? Irrigation systems and clocks can be confusing. Learn how to water in gallons (not minutes), so that your landscape will thrive, not just survive.

April 16 — Container Gardening: Containers are great for small yards, as a landscape accent, or to combat poor soil. Learn how to grow vegetables, roses and annuals in pots.

April 23 — Growing Roses: Many types of roses grow well in the desert. Learn how and when to plant, prune, and care for your roses to get colorful blooms.

April 30 — The Plant Detective: Is it a nutrient deficiency? A pest? Too much/ too little water? Learn how to scout your garden to identify problems and control them before they become a costly fix.

Pre-registration is requested through the City of Henderson website.

The Master Gardeners will have an “Ask a Master Gardener” table at the Park on class days. Acacia Park is located at 50 Casa Del Fuego (Intersection of 215 and 515) in Henderson, Nev. Master Gardener volunteers are also available to answer questions through the Home Gardening Help Line, 702-257-5555. The Help Line is staffed Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
