In the populated locations of the Sierra Nevada (or the Rockies for that matter) the climate does not get much more challenging than it does in Truckee, Glenshire & Hirschdale. Trees, Shrubs, Perennials, Groundcovers, Bulbs and Seeds that thrive in Truckee, plants that the Villager Nursery offers, will grow well anywhere in the mountain west. Really. We have MANY wonderful clients from Reno, Colfax, Nevada City, Downieville, Quincy, Portola, Meyers and even many more high foothill to summit locations.
Fall sales are "technically" over, and we have one more load of trees arriving approx. 10/25. We are like the trees at the Villager these days... changing color but not yet dropping our leaves. We have begun cutting back perennials and fertilizing with Biosol and Gardner & Bloome but we have not yet begun putting the plants into the shade for winter. Fall IS for planting and, in the sun at least, the soil is actually still accumulating the warmth that encourages root system expansion.
Do not forget to keep your plants and lawns moist. It does not take much but do not let your plants dry out. Once a week-or-so is probably plenty, less often in shade. Hopefully you got the memo and mulched ALL bare soil with Gromulch and wood chips to reduce moisture loss, keep out weeds, reduce temperature swings in the roots and to feed the soil. Winterizing Class Saturday 10/26 from 10-11am. ($5 donation to the Farwest Nordic Foundation).
