BULLHEAD CITY — Tri-state Master Gardeners will present a workshop Thursday to help local gardeners prepare for summer.

The workshop, titled “Plant Propagation and Getting Ready for Summer,” will be held at 2 p.m. at the Bullhead City branch of the Mohave County Library, 1170 Hancock Road. It is scheduled to run for two hours.

Among the topics to be discussed are planting seeds, grafting and air layering. There also will be hands-on demonstrations of planting cactus pads and pieces.

The presentation is part of the local Master Gardeners’ monthly series on horticultural topics, and is its last formal Thursday-afternoon program until September.

Home Garden Days, held the second Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. until noon, will continue through June then go into hibernation until September. The morning programs, also held at the Bullhead City library, are informal sessions covering a wide range of horticultural topics. The public is encouraged to bring their questions about desert gardening, along with samples or pictures of the plants they have questions about, to these meetings.

The Master Gardener educational sessions are free to the public and are presented by the Bullhead City, Fort Mohave and Laughlin Master Gardeners, who have been certified through the University of Arizona Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Program.
