Closed for the Season

Trinity Nursery Closed for the SeasonReopening February 2, 2015.

Thanks to you all for such a lovely season. We enjoyed sharing smiles, laughs and stories with you throughout the year.

But, now it’s time to turn off the lights as the party for this year is over.

This doesn’t mean you can ignore your gardens, though! Remember to check our trusted Gardening Calendars for Fall and Winter.

You can also take this quieter time to plan changes and additions to your edible and ornamental gardens.

When we reopen in February, many of our bareroot plants will be in stock. They will be perfectly dormant and ready for planting. Last season’s bareroot plant lists are still posted on this website (click on Bareroot Lists here or in the right sidebar). We’ll post here (and probably on Facebook, too) as soon as the new lists are available.

Click the Info tab on our menu to find some articles and plant lists that might help you choose some new plants for your Trinity garden. Looking for deer-resistant? Annuals and perennials for your cutting garden? Natives plants? Fall color? It’s all there.

We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and we’ll see you in February!

For great fall color, we have hundreds of garden mums in stock ready to bloom.

The bonus? They’re perennials!

Have you tried Cool Wave Pansies?

Cool Wave Pansies at Trinity NurseryThey are a great trailing style perfect for spreading in the garden or hanging from baskets and pots.

Phenomenal Lavender is a very attractive rebloomer which is very cold hardy and quite fragrant.

Cool-season veggiesHow about a fall vegetable garden?

The same plants we grow in the cool spring also do great in the cool fall.

Choose from broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and lettuce, to name a few.

Perennials?

Are you looking to add to your perennial garden? They are cold-hardy, so will survive our winters just fine. Plant them this fall for bigger, bloomier plants next season.

Summmertime!

It’s summertime in Trinity County! Time to shift gardening gears from planting to tending and harvesting. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your garden this summer.

  • Blue Pincushion flowers are a favorite perennialWater – Everything needs it, but be especially attentive to new plantings, pots and hanging baskets. A thick layer of mulch helps keep soil moisture from evaporating.
  • Fertilize – Veggies, fruit trees, flowers, roses and lawns will all benefit from feeding this time of year. Remember to make sure your plants are well-watered before you feed them.
  • Flowers – Keep your flowers blooming by dead-heading spent blossoms.

Check out our Summer Gardening Calendar for more advice for the summer season.
