Naomi has worked at Greenhouse Garden Center for several years and worn many hats.
The last few years she has been the watering supervisor. She and her husband are owners of Dirt Merchant Farm, an organic farm, in the Silver Springs area.
We are very pleased to announce that we are selling Full Circle Compost products in bulk - in yard or 1/2 yard quantities. All Full Circle products are all-natural and enviro-friendly.
The Boost, Kick and Soar are packed with worm compost, sea kelp, fish protein and amino acids. Boost is used as a soil amendment to repair indoor or outdoor soil. Kick is a stand-alone soil, ideal for use in raised beds. Soar is a reusable potting soil for container planting.
Both Kick and Soar have a pumice-enhanced soil for excellent oxygen circulation. The Protect, which is a shredded wood mulch, is made of 100% recycled organic materials.
Once a year, our landscape division offers a Paver Installation Class. This year, the class will be on June 6th at 9 AM.

Buy an Anna's Promise Rose package for $68.99 and receive a 5 Gallon
Anna's Promise Rose, 1 Bumper Crop, 1 Master Nursery Bud & Bloom fertilizer tub and an Anna's Promise tote bag, while supplies last.
Anna's Promise rose praises the true heart and steadfast love that transcends the trials and tribulations endured by Downton Abbey's character Anna Bates.
The unique color combination of golden petals with a pink blush and glowing bronze reverse is a fitting representation of Anna's character. Elegant blossoms surrounded by glossy-green foliage exude a spicy, fruit fragrance.
This graceful plant includes strong blossom stems for bouquets in the parlor. It is well clothed with deep glossy green foliage.
In the Great Basin area, we are perpetually experiencing drought conditions, sometimes worse then other times. Many people are looking for alternatives to traditional landscaping, and planting drought-tolerant plants will help you save water and money. Let's start by defining the three different levels of drought tolerant plants.
First are the DROUGHT-EVASIVE plants. These plants have the ability to adapt to environmental stresses and maximize growth.
These plants usually lose a number of leaves when the summer heat begins. Examples of drought-evasive plants include Rugosa rose, Lilac and Poplars.
DROUGHT-TOLERANT plants maximize efficiency of water use and survive in less than typical precipitation amounts in any given region. These plants may completely defoliate with a lack of water, yet re-grow a second set of leaves when regular watering resumes. Examples of drought-tolerant plants include Ash, Privet, Sumac, and Quince.
DROUGHT-RESISTANT plants have developed strategies to withstand long periods with little or no water. This classification of plants have relatively low water requirements.
Examples of drought-resistant plants include Junipers, Pines, Yuccas, Fern bush and Apache Plume. Drought-tolerant and drought-resistant plants share many of the same characteristics.
These include thick leaves, waxy coated leaves, hairy leaves, silvery/grayish foliage, narrow leaves and prickly leaves. We keep a list of trees and shrubs, hardy in this area, in our information kiosk.
Greenhouse Garden Center has just received a large shipment of 1 and 2 gallon Japanese Maples. There are 40 different varieties. These are low grafted specimens, which makes them suitable for Bonsai. There are many great colors and unusual leaf patterns to choose from.
RADIUS ERGONOMIC GARDEN TOOLS
Garden more and hurt less. These new hand tools are designed to be easier to use, with a padded handle, are light weight, and have a patented ergonomic design, ideal for all gardeners but especially suitable to the senior gardener who might be experiencing arthritis. These hand tools include a cultivator, scooper, and weeder in a variety of fun colors.
Celebrate all the shades of white with our new line of white silk flowers.
Seasons, our premier gift shop has just received this stunning collection of white silk flowers. They are beautiful alone or will complement any mixed arrangement. Let Nancy B and Tiffany help you create a very special summer white floral arrangement.
Prune the spring flowering shrubs after they are done blooming. Lilacs, forsythia, and snowball bushes are all spring bloomers.
Take one or two of the big stems or trunks out to allow young wood to grow up and bloom in later years.
Watering the lawn in the evening is an open invitation for lawn fungus. Watering after midnight and cycling to get 2 to 3 run times that morning creates less runoff, healthier turf and fewer bugs.
Watering every third day is sufficient for a healthy lawn. In Carson City, there are designated water days, depending on your address. Check your area to make sure that you are following your local watering laws.
Increase the time on your irrigation timer 20-30% for summer heat.
Check and spray your roses, euonymus, apples and crab-apples for powdery mildew. This white, powder-like fungus grows quickly with mild, humid nights.
If you had powdery mildew last year, chances are you will have it this year. Treat it organically with ORGANICIDE 3 in 1 Garden Spray. Cloud Cover sprayed on the leaves is another effective way to eliminate powdery mildew.
Watch stressed spruce trees. A fungus called Pink Needle can wipe out a spruce tree in 2 years. Spray with 2 different fungicides, a systemic fungicide called Phyton 27 and a contact fungicide called Daconil, over the course of four weeks, using each product 2 times.
For the most effective results, use a surfactant/sticker called Spray-Grip with each product.
Shade your pond. Remember that algae grows faster with more sunlight. The more plant foliage on the pond, the less algae in the water. Microbe-Lift Bio-Blue turns the water clear blue but prevents sunlight from penetrating into the water.
Fertilize all pond plants with Jobes Organics Fertilizer Spikes.
Fertilize the lawn with Dr. Earth Lawn Food.
Hose down your evergreens twice a month to prevent spider mites from setting up colonies in them.
Are you bothered by snakes? Apply Snake-A-Way and you won't have snake problems. Reapply this product at the end of July.
Prune apple trees now to prevent water sprouts. Your apple tree will produce bigger fruit too!
