After a brief winter closure, the Nursery reopened for business on Monday, February 2. With the new year, we have a new look for our website HOME page.
For the past two years, we’ve been posting seasonal updates to our website, Facebook and via email to our e-Newsletter subscribers. For those of you who have been following our website posts, things are changing.
This post you are reading is our last post to the website. Our HOME page is now static. We really like how it looks, but for those of you who are used to the changing content, it might take a little getting used to.
From here on, everyone will have two — not three — electronic ways to get the latest nursery news from us:
Like us on Facebook (click the icon in the right sidebar) to engage with us on a more social level. We will be announcing new arrivals here in the most timely fashion.
Subscribe to Trinity Nursery e-News! Click on Subscribe in the right sidebar on our website (look just below our store hours) to add your email address to our e-News mailing list. Receive periodic emails on new arrivals, upcoming sales and other announcements.
We send out our e-newsletters on a regular basis throughout spring, and then as appropriate through the rest of the year.
Of course you can sign up for both Facebook and e-News, stop in the nursery, and call us on the phone! We love to stay connected! (You can rest assured we will not share or sell your contact information.)
We’ll be sending out our first e-News of the year next week, so come on, join the fun and subscribe!
Reopening 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!

Bedding plants for late summer and fall have arrived: color, veggies and perennials!
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?
They 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.
How 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.
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.

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.
- Water – 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.
