    Happy Fall 2018! (and Fall Sale details)
    Fall began Saturday, September 22 with the autumnal equinox.
    Starting Sunday September 23, Villager Nursery will offer 30% off all 6-pack, 4" and quart size herbaceous perennials and wildflowers... plant these now for a beautiful perennial garden next spring. The #1 gallon size and larger herbaceous perennials are 20% OFF until 10/14. 
    ALL of our huge selection of Trees & Shrubs are 20% OFF 
    Plus special selections at 30% off: 
      • Native Tundra Honeyberry: Lonicera caerulea, Honeyberry, Blue-berried Honeysuckle, Hacksap, a circumboreal species native to mountains and forests throughout the northern hemisphere, hardy to USDA zone 1 (≤ -50°F). Two varieties are required for pollination.
      • Native Single-leaf Piñon Pine: Pinus monophylla is the world’s only single-leaved pine. It is also a source of large piñon nuts and is of major cultural importance to Sierra and Great Basin indigenous people. It is said, “the Piñon is to the Great Basin people what the American Bison is to the Plain’s people”. We have some rare, beautiful #10g trees.
      • #10g 'Spring Snow' Sterile Crabapples: Spring Snow Crabapple has a solid mass of enormous white flowers without fruit on a perfect "lollipop tree' to 20’ tall and only 15’ wide.
      • Fruiting Apple, Cherry, Pear and Plum Trees: We offer many hardy varieties of fruiting apples primarily late-flowering and early fruiting. While it is best to have two varieties for pollination, nearby crabapples usually offer up enough pollen for fruit. Roman’s were responsible for propagating Montmorency Cherries in Europe. These “Tart” cherries produce fruit almost every year in spite of spring frosts.
      • Native Sierra Spiraea splendens var. splendens (of "broad ecological amplitude"). Cultivated varieties like 'Summer Song' are 20% off.
      • Hardy Vines:  Clematis including western native C. columbiana. Hardy Kiwi (vigorous vine, yet to see fruit), Hop vine, Honeysuckle, Porcelain Vine, Virginia Creeper, and a few even more interesting options.

      • Elderberry, Currant, Gooseberry, Grape, Blueberry and Honeyberry Shrubs. 

    AND 40% Off one of our best native screening shrubs:

     • Native Green Chokecherries: Our native Prunus virginiana var. demissa. The cultivated variety of P. virginiana var. melanocarpa ‘Canada Red’ (@ 20% off) has a purplish leaf in summer. Chokecherries are fast-growing with abundant and fragrant spring flowers and fruit that makes excellent jelly.  It also has nice orange fall color and can be hedged to almost any height.

    There is also a coupon for Biosol, a coupon for hardy deer-proof Bulbs and Buy-4, Get 1 Free special on ALL Composts, Potting Soils, Manures  and Bark Mulches. 

    Bulbs are 10% off individual bulb prices or individual packets.  10% off G&B Fertilizers.  And there's a coupon for $_ off Biosol fertilizer (also bring a bucket for 12lb Biosol @ 19.99).

  • Happy Fall 2016! (and Fall Sale details)

    Fall begins Thursday September 22 with the autumnal equinox. I'm in Ouray, CO w/family collecting native seed and appreciating the fall colors (as I have many times over the years).  We have no internet at the house and the cell service is spotty so a "hot-spot" doesn't really work.  I've run into town for the day and parked at Mouse's to use their wi-fi (thanks again) to write a newsletter / sale-flier. The Newsletter highlights our MANY truck-loads of plants over the past 3 weeks and a Fall Sale. My communication with the shop has been rare as well so please forgive them if they didn't know I was writing this.

    Starting Saturday, 9/24, Villager Nursery will offer 40% off all 6-pack, 4" and quart size herbaceous perennials and wildflowers... plant these now for a beautiful perennial garden next spring. The #1 gallon size and larger herbaceous perennials are a whopping 30% OFF until 10/16. ALL of our huge selection of Trees & Shrubs are 20% OFF plus Danny's special selection: 

    Danny's Sale Selection: a large handful of 30% OFF specials…

    Native Tundra Honeyberry: Lonicera caerulea, Honeyberry, Blue-berried Honeysuckle, Hacksap, a circumboreal species native to mountains and forests throughout the northern hemisphere, hardy to USDA zone 1 (≤ -50°F). Two similar varieties are required for pollination.

    Native Single-leaf Piñon Pine: Pinus monophylla is the world’s only single-leaved pine. It is also a source of large piñon nuts and is of major cultural importance to Sierra and Great Basin indigenous people. It is said, “the Piñon is to the Great Basin people what the American Bison is to the Plain’s people”. We have some rare, beautiful #5g trees.

    Native Green Multi (& Single-Trunk Canada Red) Chokecherries: Our native Prunus virginiana var. demissa  and the Rocky Mountain P. virginiana var. melanocarpa. The cultivated variety ‘Canada Red’ has a purplish leaf in summer. It is a fast growing species with fragrant and abundant spring flowers and bitter fruit that makes great jelly (I know!) As fast-growing a tree as Aspen.

    Marilee and Dolgo Crabapples: Marilee Flowering Crabapple has large pink buds and abundant, enormous double white flowers without fruit on a narrow tree 20’ tall and only 10’ wide.  Dolgo is a large (30’+) shade tree with fragrant white blooms and large edible crabapples (1 1/2” dia.) fruit.

    Fruiting Apple & Cherry Trees: We offer many hardy varieties of fruiting apples primarily late-flowering and early fruiting. While it is best to have two varieties for pollination, nearby crabapples usually offer up enough pollen for fruit. Roman’s were responsible for propagating Montmorency Cherries in Europe. These “Tart” cherries produce fruit almost every year in spite of spring frosts.

    Hedge and Bigtooth Maples: Acer campestre, hedge maple, has been used for dense screening for over 1000 years in Europe. It is hardy and relatively fast growing with Aspen-gold fall color.  Acer grandidentatum is native to the dry, cold eastern shores of the Great Basin. Bigtooth maple in the Wasatch range has incredible fall colors and is also grown to produce maple syrup. It is being planted en masse in Brickletown (see pic. in the newsletter)

    Hardy Vines:  I’m not in the nursery today but I know we have several of my favorite hardy Clematis including western native C. columbiana. Hardy Kiwi (vigorous vine, yet to see fruit), Hops (plant in the back-40), Hardy (USDA z.3) Honeysuckle and a few even more interesting options.

    There is also a coupon for Biosol, a coupon for hardy deer-proof Bulbs and Buy-3, Get 1 Free special on ALL Composts, Potting Soils, Manures  and Bark Mulches. 

  • Hailstorm & Crazy

     

    12:50PM 9 July 2015, I was leaving town to go for an afternoon hike on the west side, taking Old 40 for beauty-sake and I stopped to take a picture of town getting (what I THOUGHT was) rain. I posted to Villager Nursery Facebook how using row-cover can save your garden from hail damage.  Minutes later driving over the summit, Rob sent me this picture.

      

    We were not hit as hard as part of Glenshire / Cambridge was hit in 2013 (TOTAL defoliation) but we suffered 20-30% foliage loss. Pretty rough. The perennials, trees and shrubs will be fine with some torn leaves. Everyone here covered (with row-cover) what they could of the annual color, on VERY short notice and they're perfect.  We've already been giving them seaweed for cell strength and protection as well as organic fertilizers to help them flush-out again this summer. We are working on a Hailstorm Sale Newsletter  this weekend for plants that just won't look as fantastic as they did (this summer) before the 9th.

  • Solstice Summer Sale

    We've been trying to carve out a few minutes to make a Spring Promotion Newsletter, so here it is, a few days past Summer Solstice, a sale to last until nearly 4th of July.  Get your garden on if you have not yet... I planted my greens in early April but have not had a chance to start my Tomatoes yet - (It has become an tradition for me to stay home from the parade to plant mine up.)  They're all 20% off until the 3rd along with beans, cukes, peas, squash, peppers, lettuce, etc....  The mature composts from Kellogg as well as the garden enhancing Chicken and Farmyard composts are all buy-three-get-one-free now as well so side-dress away.  We put a couple of awesome #5g shrubs (maple and chokecherry) on special for your screening needs this week, because they are fantastic.  Ad 30% off of our Apples, hardy Cherries, and incredibly productive currants and gooseberries is a smokin' deal - you can use fruiting shrubs as ornamentals without worry, they're tough and attractive as well as productive.  Sales run through July 3.  Our 4th of July hours are roughly 9-10 and 12-2... depending on traffic and the parade when we are closed.  Please swing by and say hello if you're walking the route (or throw us extra candy if you're on a float).
