Solving garden problems workshop

Posted 4/11/2017

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension gardening monthly workshops continue



Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, May 20, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: solving garden problems. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

As summer approaches, you may notice holes in leaves, black spots on the bottoms of the tomatoes, spots on the leaves, your squash not developing or a variety of other things. If you’d like to know what the problems are and what to do about them, join Angela O’Callaghan, social horticulturist, as she explains the common problems in the garden, how they happen, how you can avoid them and what to do about them if they occur.

Problems such as nutrient deficiencies, pests and diseases will be covered. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. There is a $10 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. Register online via

The upcoming Gardening in Small Places workshop dates are June 17, soils; July 15, organic gardening; Aug. 26, tree selection; and Sept. 9, using native plants.
