The plant sale season is really heating up, much faster than our weather this year! And in preparation for the growing season, there are plenty of upcoming sales in the Seattle area, north and south,
from British Columbia to Oregon. There is sure to be something for everyone, even the pickiest of hort-heads out there.
Here are a few images of the plants I scored at previous plant sales, along with links to sales this year.
(Please click on the images to see them in more detail.)
Eryngium (Sea Holly)
Quite a few of the plants in the above photo
actually survived the winter this year.
All were purchased from various vendors at FlorAbundance,
an annual sale to raise funds to support the Washington Park Arboretum.
Their sale takes place on April 30 and May 1.
Lake Wilderness Arboretum is located in Maple Valley, south of Seattle.
Their plant sale will be on Friday and Saturday, May 6 and 7.
(The 3 plants above were purchased at LWA plant sales.)
The King County Master Gardener Plant Sale will be on May 7 and 8
at the Center for Urban Horticulture in Seattle, on the UW campus.
Larix kaempferi 'Diane',
Yes, tiny right now, but will grow to be even greater!
I have purchased plenty, and I mean a lot, of other plants at this plant sale, but for the life of me, I can't find other photos of them.
Sorry...please refer to my plea for HELP in organizing my photos
Last, I will leave you with the link to the Mother Lode of information,

for plant sales in the Pacific Northwest, from BC to Oregon.
Which plant sales are you looking forward to attending?
