Jan. garden demonstrations and tours scheduled
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners conduct demos
During their monthly garden work days, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners invite the community to visit the Demonstration and Test Gardens. As part of the In the Garden series, residents may bring their gardening questions on the following days during Jan.:
Join the Master Gardeners in the gardens as they do seasonal pruning. The free demonstrations are open to the public.
- Rose Garden — Mondays, Jan. 9 and 23 at 9 a.m.
- Fruit Tree Orchard — Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 8 a.m.
- Herb Garden — Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 9 a.m. — Pruning Pomegranates in the Courtyard
Master Gardeners will also offer garden tours on each Friday in Jan. (Jan.6, 13, 20, 27) at 10 a.m. The tours are based on participants’ interests. For group tours, call Ann Edmunds at 702-257-5587 at least one week prior.
Visitors should be prepared to be outdoors (sun protection, closed toe shoes, drinking water). The gardens surround Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center at 8050 Paradise Rd., Las Vegas, Nev. and features 1300 species of desert-adapted plants that are identified by botanical and common names.
For Pomegranate pruning in the Herb Garden meet at Master Gardener Help Desk; parking is available in front lot. Otherwise, park in the back lot and look for the Master Gardeners “in the gardens!”
For more information or other gardening questions, email or call the Master Gardener Help Desk at 702-257-5555. Master Gardener volunteers staff the desk Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
