10th Annual Fallon Garden Tour, sneak preview

The garden tour is coming up this Sunday the 26th, and I thought it would be fun to give you a little bit of a sneak preview of what you might see if you go. Remember, the tickets are only $5.00 and 100% of the ticket price goes to the Fallon Youth Club, a great organiziation struggling to make ends meet.
This year we invited five our your favorites from years past to be on the tour. We have a little bit of everything, from formal gardens to some of the best raised bed layouts we see here in town.
Enjoy the lovely gardens of:
Lisa & Scott Swan
Peg Buckner & Micheal Hewitt
Sylvia & Dave Lumos
Mary & Paul Pflimlin
Doris & John Powell

Lahontan Valley Garden Club

  The Lahontan Valley Garden Club had its monthly meeting in the Rose Garden last week. Such a lovely group of women, and amazing gardeners. If you want to join them, they meet the third Monday of every month and are always looking for new members.

Clematis in Bloom

Gorgeous view of a purple clematis in full bloom. This picture was taken this morning by Dave Waite with Heavywaite Landscaping here in Fallon. Thank you for sharing Dave!

Clematis is actually very easy to grow here in the valley. The main thing to remember is to keep the roots cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. This one is actually planted in a Southern exposure.

We have a great selection right now of beautiful one gallon plants. Pinks, purples, multi blends - all will be blooming like this next year with the right care. I think one of them will be going home with me this evening. See you soon, Susan
