We all have that neighborhood friend who lives down the street. They’re your afternoon buddy, they make you late for dinner and are a part of your earliest memories. Here at Fossil Creek Nursery, we too have a neighborhood bud who lives right next to us, but instead of playing basketball together, we create and perfect handcrafted landscapes.
The Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

Good morning, autumn. The turn of a new season means new calendars, new holidays and new events at your local, plant nursery!
Friends, mark your calendars for Fossil Creek Nursery’s very own, Harvest Fest. Happening on Saturday, October 7th from 10 am – 3 pm, our fest has been enjoyed by thousands over the years!
We will be bringing in several samples of the varieties of apples that grow right here in Colorado to the nursery. Fest go-ers will be able to taste the different flavors from these tasty fruits and then vote for your favorite.
The fruits of your landscape are one of the most rewarding benefits to gardening. Being able to pull your home-grown vegetables and fruits inside inspires masterful creations for the kitchen. This time, we want you to bring your masterpieces to us.

Bare root plants are dug when they go dormant for the year and have stored nutrients for the winter. This dormancy period allows the plants to be stored in special warehouses so that they can be shipped to customers at the proper planting time for their area. Due to the fact that bare root plants have no soil or containers, they can be shipped more efficiently. Furthermore, this cuts down on the labor that has put into each plant. These two factors lead to big savings by buying bare root plants instead of container plants.
