Gardening at Tahoe/Truckee   Leave a comment

TTC flowers fall

Spring has sprung in the Tahoe basin…or what passes for it in the High Sierra.  We’ve been unseasonably warm for this time of year, which gets many of us itching to be out in our yards and dreaming of seed packets and gardening. Those of us who have lived here for any length of time know better. It’s not uncommon to have a substantial snowstorm in May, thus destroying all our best laid plans for flower beds.

That being said, it’s never too early to start picking up winter’s debris in anticipation. Raking up the deep carpet of pine needles, miscellaneous trash that mysteriously seems to appear once the snow drift dissipates (now how did THAT get here?) and the ever copious pine cones is never a bad idea. Nor is amending the soil to make ready for a bountiful harvest of blooms.

Towards those ends, the local nurseries have opened early to take advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures. For Truckee residences, there is the Villager Nursery, where in addition to plants, you can also find hydroponic and composting supplies. Visit their website for many informative articles on High Sierra Gardening and events happening at the Villager Nursery in Truckee.

In Tahoe City, there is The Tahoe Tree Company dba McBrides Nursery. The large log building has a gift shop in addition to garden supplies and seeds. Set on 10 acres, they also grow many native plants on site in addition to their property in Loomis.

Follow them on Facebook for all the upcoming events they have planned for this summer.
