Elko Correspondence – April 2018


Spring Gardening

Aquilegia Rocky Mountain Blue, one of scores of beautiful perennials available at Colorscapes nursery in Lamaoille.

The snow is melting, the ground is thawing, and it is time to head outside and do a little gardening. My favorite place for plants and gardening supplies is Colorscapes in Lamoille. Marvel Clyde has been operating this nursery for years and I’ve always been happy with the variety and quality of plants that are sourced for the high desert growing conditions. In addition, her knowledge and advice for gardening in our climate is terrific. Colorscapes is open on weekends throughout April. Call Marvel at 753-5000 or visit her website at www.colorscapesgreenhouse.com
