Garden Events (Sales, Tours, Speakers, etc)

Listed here are upcoming garden events and sales. Some are one-time events and are listed in order of date. Others are ongoing events or go on for a period of time.

I include mainly events that people and organizations ask me to mention along with some of my personal favorites. Note some events are free, many tours charge admission. If I do not mention a fee, please don't assume that it is free. Visit the websites to determine if there is a fee.

One-Time Events

  • Lake Washington Institute of Technology Environmental Horticulture Spring Plant Sale: April 28-29, May 5-6, Friday and Saturday from 9am to 3pm. Come visit us for a fantastic selection of annual bedding plants, hanging fuchsia baskets and veggie and herb starts. We have some of the best crops because of the detailed attention given by our students. For instance as our fuchsias grow we carefully pinch them to encourage branching and therefore more blooms in the baskets. We also have stunning Abutilons in four colors, a sensational array of succulents and enough trailing Bacopa to fill everyone's window boxes. Come visit us at 11605 132nd Ave NE, Kirkland, WA 98034 or call for more information 425-739-8279.
