University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and the South Valley Rose Society are collaborating and offering educational meetings throughout the winter. Free and open to the public, the January 26 topic is Pruning roses.

The New Year begins with the annual pruning session. Consulting Rosarian Steve Schneider will teach pruning techniques for all rose varieties. The class will be broken into small groups and consulting rosarians will prune and explain the nuances of the different varieties: hybrid teas, floribundas, shrubs, miniatures and climbers. Bring your gloves, shears (pruning & lopping), tool wipes and leaf strippers.

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 call or email the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555.
