  • Mid-Winter 2018-2019

    As I closed the gate for our mid-winter season I came back inside to change the message on the answering machine, adjust the holiday lights timers, change the hours on our gate and on the search engines and social media:  Bing, Google, Yelp, Facebook and this webpage (my business partner believes this is all magically done by elves). I look forward to trying to make sense of another crazy season as a nursery in the high Sierra and to plan and prepare for the next. It's a stupid business, really. No one in their right mind would do what we do unless they have a ridiculous passion for it... and we do. We also wouldn't have survived this long ("thriving" in the nursery industry is surviving to open the next spring) without the support and straight-up love of our clients and friends who share our ridiculous passions. Thanks Y'all!  

    We are now "mostly closed" until mid-March-ish, weather dependent but we are delighted to hear from anyone with mountain gardening related questions, bid-requests, or product needs.  Call the shop and leave a message or send us an e-mail and we'll get back to you in a few days.  We are in and out of the shop almost daily all winter as the boys (cats) need feeding and attention and there is 5 months worth of bookkeeping and organizing to get done in the next 3 months.  Bright Solstice, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year. - e


  • Truckee-Tahoe Growing Season

    Truckee's "Frost-free Period" according to NOAA is July 15 to August 15. We have many years with far longer periods without frost and some years with far less.  With foresight and effort, Villager Nursery gives clients the tools to be successful in this challenging environment.  Hardy and mountain native trees, shrubs, perennials, wildflowers and bulbs can be planted from before snow-melt to after snow-fall.  

    Our soils are still warming and plant roots LOVE warm soil for growing.  Check our Villager-Nursery Facebook page for the most frequent updates and sign-up for our infrequent newsletters
