University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and the South Valley Rose Society are collaborating and offering educational meetings throughout the fall. On Thursday, Sept. 22 find out how to prepare your rose garden for fall blooms at this free, open to the public, workshop.

As temperatures start to cool, it’s time to adjust our rose care schedules and for fall. Review important fertilization, irrigation and pruning techniques to ensure this year’s final rose "flush" in late Oct. will be the best one yet.

All educational meetings are held at 7 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. (I-215 and Windmill Lane). For more information, please email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555.

Upcoming Rose Society meetings are Thursday, Oct. 27: Planting bare root roses; Nov. 17: Container planting; and Dec. 15: topic to be determined.
