Caring for roses during the summer

Posted 4/11/2017

Learn how to prepare for the upcoming heat of summer

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension and the South Valley Rose Society are collaborating and offering educational meetings throughout the spring. Free and open to the public, the May 25 meeting will cover how to prepare your roses for the summer heat.

The rising temperatures and dry, hot winds of late May signal a switch from spring to summer rose care. Learn how to manage what may become a third summer of record desert heat; new irrigation, mulching, fertilization and garden hygiene tips.

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.
