Welcome to our website. We hope you will enjoy our additions to the Plants page as well as more frequent updates on our open garden dates and our participation in the many plants sales in the Puget Sound area.
Once again Chimacum Woods has contributed plants for the display gardens at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Judith Jones of Fancy Fronds and Vanca Lumsden have included five of our R. sinograndes in their garden, “Bugs’ Abode.” Our eight-foot granddad barely fit in our van but made the trip with nary a bent leaf. Any or all of these five are willing to move into YOUR garden at the end of the show.
Several other of our plants will appear in the WSNLA Wine Bar.
YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT TO VISIT – NO NEED TO WAIT FOR AN OPEN GARDEN DAY
(Although the refreshments may not be quite as lavish, we will attempt to keep the coffee on).
Greetings in the midst of winter – snow, sleet, rain, and the lead-up to SPRING!
Valentine’s Day may be past, but now is the time to begin thinking about fertilizing.
Our plants are looking pretty good considering the low temps this winter. They are starting to perk up and most are still under plastic so we can talk to them without getting wet.
Our first public plant sale – benefiting the Northwest Horticulture Society — will be at the Center for Urban Horticulture (3501 NE 41st St, Seattle, WA 98105) on Saturday, March 4 from 9 to 3. We’ll have lots of happy rhodies for you.
And, as always, give us a call if you’d like to visit the garden (206-383-2713).
See you all soon, we hope!
Bob and Beth
Thank you to all who made our “Day of Wine and Rhodies” such a success. The generosity of our guests and a contribution from Chimacum Woods is providing over $3,000 to the refugee resettlement efforts in western Washington. Thank you to all our volunteers who worked so hard to make the day a success, and thank you to Camaraderie Cellars, Mt. Townsend Creamery and the Port Townsend Food Co-op for their donations. It’s not too late to join the cause.
