Learn how to add color to your garden on a special themed garden tour this spring with the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Master Gardeners.

The garden tours, to be held at the Cooperative Extension’s Demonstration and Test Gardens, are offered on three Saturdays this spring. The tours will kick off on March 11 with “Spring has Sprung” featuring early blooming plants.

On April 8, Master Gardeners will discuss “April Flowers” and on May 20, the garden tours wrap up with “Hot Summer Colors.”

All tours start at 10 a.m. and are free to the public. Use the west side gate to meet in the courtyard of the Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev. Participants should come dressed and prepared for being outdoors. Plant lists will be provided.

The Master Gardeners continue to offer weekly tours of the entire Demonstration and Test Gardens each Friday at 10 a.m. The gardens contain over 1300 species of desert appropriate landscape plants, including: trees, shrubs, perennials, palms, cacti and agaves. Plants are identified by botanical and common names. For the weekly tours, meet in the front Reception area near the Master Gardener Help Desk. The grounds are also open for self-guided walks weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
