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!

We have scheduled a couple of events this summer we’d love for you to attend.
Parking Lot Sale:
Sunday, August 31, 8 am to 4 pm
We have cleaned out our storage sheds and have found plenty of treasures that we’re sure you’ll love: display fixtures, shop worn items, wheelbarrows, household items, and much, much more. Make us a stop on your county-wide garage sale map! Sunday only, 8 am to 4 pm. (Sorry, we won’t have any plants for sale and the nursery will be closed.)

March has arrived and it’s time for our Spring Hours. We are now open on Sundays, 10-4, and have extended hours on Saturday, 8:30-5:30. Happy planting!
A Flowering Plum planted by the Trinity Garden Club at the Highland Art Center.
Every year on or around March 7, the birth date of renowned horticulturist Luther Burbank, many Californians plant trees in celebration of Arbor Day.
Community groups in Trinity County have really come to embrace this tradition over the years and Trinity Nursery continues to support their efforts by donating trees.
We do ask that the tree be planted on or around Arbor Day on public lands (such as a park or school), and that there is a plan for caring for the tree, including a regular watering schedule.
Quantities are limited and we’d like to reach as many local communities as possible with this offer, so stop by the Nursery with your tree-planting ideas!
Some of the many varieties of fruit you can grow in Trinity County: Honey Crisp, Red Delicious, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith and Fuji Apples. D’Anjou and Bosc Pears.
Mark Your Calendars!
Trinity Nursery has teamed up with Trinity Homegrown Foods (THF) to provide a workshop titled Growing Your Own Fruit.
The workshop will cover topics including:
- superior quality, taste and nutrition of home grown fruit;
- varieties of fruit trees and berries that grow well in Trinity County;
- the importance of rootstock for local soils;
- site and plant selection;
- pollination requirements; and
- young tree care including pruning and bareroot planting tips.
This will be a great opportunity for you to learn more about growing your own food. Steve will be presenting and folks from THF will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about how their organization can help you get more food out of your garden.
This free event is open to the public. Refreshments will be provided by THF. The workshop will be outdoors, so dress appropriately. If you would like to sit during the presentation, please bring your own chair. In case of rain, the workshop will be moved to the Trinity High School cafeteria.
What: Growing Your Own Fruit Workshop
When: Saturday, March 1, 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Where: Trinity Nursery, 885 Main St, Weaverville
Hope to see you here!
After a brief winter closure, the Nursery reopened for business on Monday, February 3.
We have most of our bareroot in stock–both edibles and ornamentals!
They are perfectly dormant and ready for planting. Bareroot plant lists are posted on this website – scroll down this page, or click on Bareroot Lists here or in the right sidebar.
We also have seed potatoes (yes, a little too early to plant!), onion and garlic sets, and early-season veggie and flower seeds.
Looking for a little color to brighten up your winter garden? How about some blooming pansies and primroses?!
Remember, as long as you can work your soil, that is if it’s not muddy or frozen, you can plant cold-hardy bareroot and bedding.
We are looking forward to seeing you in the nursery!
There are two ways to stay updated on all the latest at the Nursery via email!
e-News Mailing List: We send out our e-Newsletters on a regular basis throughout spring, and then as appropriate through the rest of the year. These e-Newsletters include announcements of sales, new arrivals and other timely gardening info. You can sign up for this mailing list on our Connect page. If you already receive our e-News, there is no need to sign up again.
Website Updates: You can sign up to receive an email every time we post something to our Home page. We announce a sale? You are first to know. We announce some new arrivals? There it is in your inbox.
Just click the Sign Me Up! box in the right sidebar and a confirmation email will be sent to you. (Yes, the confirmation email may use terms like “follow” and “blog”.) You can also choose to receive your emails immediately, daily or weekly.
Give it a try!
Fall is a short season at the nursery as we will be closing for the winter this year on November 9. While we look forward to the break, there is a lot of work to do in preparation.
The most important thing is to make sure you have everything you need—dormant sprays, fertilizers, chemicals and other dry goods—to see you through until we reopen next year.
Here are a couple of seasonal reminders from our Fall Gardening Calendar:
- Feed Early Spring Bloomers … such as Rhododendrons, Dogwoods, Forsythia and more with Master Bloom (0-10-10) for better flowers and fruit next year — read our Fall Fertilization article to find out why (and to find out about what other plants will benefit from feeding in the fall).
- Peach Leaf Curl … make your first application of Liqui-Cop Fungicide in November. Mark your January calendar for your second application, and March for your final. Peaches and Nectarines are your only fruit trees that get peach leaf curl.
- Mulch … before the first frosts come, to protect against cold damage. Try Black Forest Compost – a premium, organic, long-lasting blend of redwood and fir bark, fortified with nitrogen and iron — or Cocoa Hulls – smells like chocolate! Make sure to cover the root zone, but keep the mulch from touching the trunks of trees and shrubs.
Make sure to check out our Fall and Winter Gardening Calendars for all the details on how to ensure you are prepared for this winter in the garden.
As part of our preparation for winter, we’re having a sale! Check out the End-of-Season Sale post for all the details.
