Villager Nursery will be closed ALL DAY on July 4 and 10-3 on July 5 & 6th so we can garden at home, hike and enjoy time with family.  Villager Nursery is cautiously, regularly OPEN.  The town, county and state request and require masks be worn in public spaces and that everyone do their utmost to maintain 6' spacing.  We are sorry for any inconvenience, we are doing our best.  There are so many challenges for everyone this season and the nursery sphere is not the least unchanged. We are ordering three times as often from every grower in order to obtain one quarter of the plant materials. That said, by all accounts we have an incredibly broad and deep inventory and people have been coming to our nursery from far and wide... good and bad.  We will continue to strive to have the best possible selection of native and cold hardy trees, shrubs and perennials as well as the widest selection of vegetables and color for mountain gardens, planter boxes, hanging baskets and barrels.

Mid Season Planting – July/August
