Since gardening is a year-round activity in Las Vegas, the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program is offering a free evening speaker series, Growing Under the Stars. The monthly speaker and topic will change depending upon the gardening concerns for that month.

The New Year starts on Wednesday, Jan. 10 with tips on working with native plants. If you are interested in working with native plants, you may find that the plants have not transplanted as successfully as you may have hoped. In addition, if you’ve decided to plant from seed, you may find that the seeds are very hard to find or quite expensive. Master Gardener Anne Marie Lardeau and her team of Master Gardeners have worked successfully with natives on our campus for several years and have learned from some of their more frustrating experiences. Join Lardeau for this class to learn how to work with natives and enhance your chances of having them thrive in your garden.

The session runs from 6 - 7:30 p.m. at the Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.

For more information, email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555.
