Rose Society May meeting
How to prepare for the summer heat and conserve water
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 26 meeting topic is Preparing your rose garden for summer heat.
Join Judith Kafantaris, Master Gardener and Consulting Rosarian, for a discussion about the Mojave Desert’s summer temperatures and the hot and drying winds. It’s important to prepare roses for this reality. Roses will react to the heat and change accordingly. Gardeners need to make changes in how roses are watered, mulched, and fertilized. Come find out the 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.
