Photo Gallery

What’s a Garden Club website without pictures?  The photos on this site are the work of two talented Floretum members: Linda Murray and Sarah Freudiger.  Thanks to these two hard-working volunteers!  Nearly all the photos, including the Fourth of July float, are of plants from members’ gardens.

Fourth of July

Floretum goes all out for the 4th!  Our float for the parade this year displayed an abundant and colorful collection of plants from members’ gardens.  We had riders, walkers, and a collective of workers to put it all together.

Trip to Petula

Petula Plants in Port Townsend is an unusual resource.  Co-owner Tonya Cole describes the company’s role:

We are a plant broker, and our specialty is procuring hard-to-find plants for independent garden centers and horticultural professionals in the Pacific Northwest.

“We believe in the power of plants to spark imagination & possibility.  When people get together and share garden adventures and the plants they love, barriers are crossed.”

Petula Plants played host to Floretum members recently for a succulent-planting workshop.

Chase Lake School Garden

It took a village… to create Chase Lake Elementary School’s community garden.  The brainchild of Floretum member Beth Black, Chase Lake’s garden grew like topsy:

“The goal was about community-building at the school, getting kids to know about growing healthy food, and developing compassion for all living things. Not only did the kids learn to take care of their plants, but the vegetables went to families in need.”
