He will spend most of his time answering gardening questions. This is a good time to get expert advice about desert gardening. The club meets at Jordan/Chelsa Design and Nursery on Highway 372 near Highway 160 the first Saturday of each month at 8 a.m. through September. Beginning in October, meetings will begin at 9:00 a.m. The club will have its regular meeting before Mr. Tomiyasu, brought to Pahrump by Jordan/Chelsa Nursery, speaks at 9:00 a.m. The PVGC formed in April 1995, started with 11 members and has more than tripled in size. The membership is made up of men and women who are all hands-on gardeners. They share problems, solutions and good gardening tips. Speakers are frequently invited to give expert advise on desert gardening, mulching, pruning and more. Members also share seeds, plants and buying tips. Gardeners from other areas often find themselves facing failure as they cope with poor soil conditions, fierce winds, searing heat and freezing cold in our tough desert environment. At the Club they are assured they can garden successfully in the desert. It's also a good way to meet others with a common interest. The group enjoys to social functions a year. A club picnic each fall, and an annual anniversary dinner/dance in the spring. The picnic will be held on Saturday, October 25, 1977 at Oakridge Landing from 4-7 p.m. Successfully growing flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs is the primary focus of the PVGC. For more information contact club secretary, Elsie Deason, at 727-0201.

The four American Rose Soci- ety Winners will fill center stage with brilliant color. FAME is a deep pink grandiflora with light fragrance and excellent disease resistance. Hybridizer Keith W. Zary, who had two winners in 1997, is again the top producer of a star studded performance. OPENING NIGHT, the first red rose to win the AARS award in 14 years, is also Zary's star. The deep red, hybrid tea rose boasts four and a half inch flowers. The star has a slight fra- grance, good disease re- sistance. This one deserves a standing ovation. SUNSET CELEBRA- TION, a hybrid tea, plays multiple roles. Her colors can be apricot burnished with cream or amber blush.ed with pink, or sometimes a warm, rich peach, thus her name. Produced by hybridizer Gareth Fryer, this win- some lady has a moder- ate fruity scent, large flowers and laughs at disease. FIRST LIGHT will warm the audi- ence for the rest of the show. This starlet is a fil;st for shrub roses who usually need a large stage. Her com- pact, restricted habit two feet by two feb to four feet by four feet allow her to light up a small stage.
