In The Garden series continues
University of Nevada Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners answer questions
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 April:
ROSE GARDEN ~ Mondays, April 10 and 24, 9 a.m.
VEGETABLE GARDEN ~ Wednesday, April 12, 8:30 a.m.
HERB GARDEN ~ Wednesday, April 26, 9 a.m.
GUIDED TOURS ~ Fridays, April 7, 14, 21, 28 and Saturday, April 8 at 10 a.m.
Master Gardeners will answer questions and demonstrate proper seasonal plant care techniques. Visitors should be prepared to be outdoors (sun protection, closed toe shoes, drinking water). The gardens are part of the campus surrounding Cooperative Extension at 8050 Paradise Rd., Las Vegas, Nev. and feature 1300 species of desert-adapted plants that are identified by botanical and common names.
