Village Nurseries Urges Consumers to Install Low-Water-Use Plants this Fall to Prepare for Next Summer

ORANGE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Village Nurseries Wholesale, LLC, a specialty grower for landscape
contractors, architects and designers, is continuing to spearhead
efforts to keep California green and colorful with its Save Water-Stay
Green™ campaign for the fall planting season. The company is
recommending a wide variety of low-water-use, low-maintenance shrubs,
grasses, ground covers and trees that consumers and landscape
professionals alike can use this autumn.

Weather experts predict the current four-year drought will continue next
summer despite optimistic projections of increased rain patterns this
winter caused by a strong El Niño ocean current.

To prepare for next year, Village Nurseries recommends planting
low-water-use, low-maintenance plant materials this fall. A typical fall
in California has warm days and cool evenings that make conditions ideal
for encouraging new roots to dig deeper into the soil. Once the roots
are well established, these hardy selections will need less water to
survive next spring and summer.

“We’ve earned a reputation as one of the region’s leading wholesale
nurseries in offering low-water-use plant material,” said David House,
CEO of Village Nurseries. “Currently, about 70 percent of what we grow
performs well with less water once established. Moreover, we offer a
wide range of plant materials—including unique and patented plants you
can’t find from most wholesale nurseries. Many of these selections are
from respected growers and breeders such as Monrovia,
Anthony Tesselaar Plants,
Plant Haven
and Sunset Western Garden Collection”

Registered customers can also take advantage of the website’s Wish List:
a major time saver that allows landscape architects and designers to
show their customers the plants they’ve selected—along with photos and
descriptions—without having to bring dozens of samples or physically
taking customers to the nursery.
