Award-winning Demonstration Rose Garden at the Lifelong Learning Center.

Join University of Nevada Cooperative Extension on Saturday, Oct. 21, for a one-day workshop on Gardening in Small Places: roses. The class runs from 8 a.m. to noon.

Roses are a desirable addition to any garden, even here in the Mojave Desert. With about 100 species and thousands of cultivars to choose from selecting the right rose for the right place may seem daunting. Let Master Gardener and Rosarian Judith Kafantaris teach you about the attributes to look for in roses that will do well in our dry climate. In addition, she will teach you how to care for your roses so you can get the biggest blooms and the healthiest plants. Homeowners and other interested parties are welcome to attend.

There is a $10 fee for the workshop. Class space is limited to 25 and pre-registration is required. To register for this class, held at the Lifelong Learning Center (8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.), call or email Elaine Fagin at 702-257-5573. Register online via

Final gardening class of the series is scheduled for Nov. 18, growing fruit at home.
