Are you an experienced gardener looking to fill holes in your landscape?  Or maybe a gardening newbie wanting to try things out without breaking the bank?  Floretum’s annual plant sale is the just the ticket!  On Saturday, May 7th our experienced gardeners will offer perennials, bulbs, herbs, annuals, small trees, and shrubs from their own gardens, along with advice on where and how to plant them.  Find the hardiest, most beautiful locally-grown items – especially suited to our Pacific Northwest climate – at unbelievable prices.

Along with offering abundant plant varieties, Floretum also hosts a boutique of garden-related treasures: decorative pots, vases, books, tools, indoor and outdoor garden art, crafts, seeds, and more.  Come early for the best selection.  It’s always a sell-out.

Proceeds from the Floretum plant sale go to fund scholarships for horticultural students.

Come join us!
 

April’s meeting launched the start of a marathon gardening season.!

Floretum member Gwynne Briggs demonstrated the different characteristics of corms, tubers, bulbs, and rhizomes.

Featured speaker Grace Stiller from the National Wildlife Federation explained the value of home gardening in counteracting climate change.  Good stewardship includes replacing invasive species with healthy natives.  Stiller manages the non-profit organization Weed Warriors, http://weedwarriors.us/ (volunteers welcome), and she also directed Floretum members to the King County noxious weed program.  To find out where you can send photos and get your weeds identified, click here.
