Gardening

The calendar marks December 21st as the first day of winter, but it feels like early winter has arrived here in Northern Nevada. Remaining outdoor chores will be fewer and further between, though I have been known to head out on New Year's Day to putter. For the most part, it will be reading by the wood burning stove and enjoying the holidays with friends and family. Check out our Reading and Link Suggestions Page for magazines, books, and links for garden and landscape "how to" advice.

Pictures, cultural information, and plant attributes will be posted in February.



Preview of Shrubs for 2018

We've finished transplanting the shrubs that arrived in September into pulp pots to winter-over here at Colorscapes. The bareroot stock will arrive in March and also be transplanted into pulp pots.

These biodegradable, pulp pots are large enough to fully surround the rootball, so we are able to include an amended potting mix. This combination of pulp pots and amended mix will insulate the roots through winter and again in spring and into summer as temps rise.

Preview of Perennials for 2018

The perennials we offer include "tried and true" varieties that we have grown for decades and new plants that are later trialed in our gardens to monitor for hardiness and attributes.

Every season provides us with an opportunity to improve the growing environment while continuing with our commitment to environmental sustainability both here in the greenhouse and for gardeners as the plants transition from the greenhouse into local gardens.




 
 

Our Long Term Goals:

To educate customers so they can be successful, confident gardeners.
To provide healthy plants that are grown in and for this area.
