Happy Gardeners

Our staff are all avid and passionate mt. gardeners who want nothing more than to see every client succeed on their first try. Nothing gives us greater pleasure than happy returning customers who have tasted gardening triumphs. Come by and enjoy the local expertise.

The widest selection of hardy and native plants for the High Sierra, by far. Owners are botanists and plant lovers and everyone at Villager is passionate about helping customers find the right plants for their gardens. They've been at it since the '70's and have a LOT of practical experience atop their educations. "We've killed thousands of plants in our own gardens so our clients won't have to" is something we heard them say. The demonstration gardens are amazing as well.

This is one of the prettiest nurseries I have ever seen. They have a wide selection of plants, including trees, flowers, herbs, etc. The staff is all very friendly and knowledgeable. and are more then happy to assist customer with plant selections and give great advice of what type of plant work best for you. It seemed to me that it's prices were pretty average, not too much above or below other nurseries. It;s not a huge place, but it is very well maintained. Definitely go here if you are in need of something green for your garden.  - Insiderpages

Thank you for visiting

Botanical Nursery, Art, & Gifts. A High Sierra Garden Center

Villager Nursery is open Late March through December 22 (Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, holly, poinsettias, etc...). We are "mostly closed" in mid-winter (January and February). March and April are late winter when we begin to open again as weather, demand and common sense dictate.

While it is fine to plant trees, shrubs and bulbs ANYTIME, and plants are always happier in the ground than they are in pots, few people actually get out there and dig holes in mid-winter... we do, but that's us. 

If you need anything, please call to check with us as Google, Facebook, and, gawd forbid, Yelp are not always exactly up-to-date. Even in mid-winter we'd love to help you with products, plans, bids or consulting, please contact us with your questions or for an appointment.

You can also call and leave a message at 530-587-0771
