Second Chance to Plant Your Garden – Tips for Gardening in Reno NV

Just when we thought the snow had melted for good, a late-season storm hit the Reno area. But don’t worry – this is actually good news for gardeners. The rule of thumb in Reno is that it’s time to plant your garden when the snow on Peavine Mountain melts. This recent snowfall means that you have a second chance to prepare your garden and get it ready for planting.

The key to successful gardening in Reno is to choose plants that can handle the extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Some popular options include tomatoes, peppers, beans, and squash. Make sure to choose plants that are suitable for the high desert climate.

Next, prepare your soil by adding compost and other organic materials. The soil in Reno can be sandy and nutrient-poor, so it’s important to give your plants a good foundation.

Finally, watch the weather closely and be prepared for sudden temperature changes. Protect your plants from frost and wind by covering them with blankets or burlap sacks, and make sure to water them regularly.

With these tips in mind, you can have a successful garden in Reno. Take advantage of this second chance to prepare your garden, and get ready to enjoy fresh, home-grown produce all summer long. Happy planting!
