Ferns are the garden’s graceful greenery. Come learn about how to use them with their variable sizes and shapes, interesting textures, and wonderful landscaping options. Talk will include information on natives and exotics from a small water covering mosquito fern to tree ferns and the delights in between. They offer everything but flowers (although some do indeed have color.)


Update 6/6/12 Here’s the handout:  Ferns – They Don’t All Look Alike!  We’ll have printouts available, too.

Summer Plant Sale – Saturday June 23rd – 10am-2pm

Summer Plant Sale

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012, 10 am – 2 pm

14555 Stone Ave N, Shoreline 98133  [MAP]

We have a lot of plants which we potted  up and didn’t take to the April plant sale because they hadn’t grown enough by mid-April. So, we’re having an additional plant sale.  The address is 14555 Stove Ave N, Shoreline WA 98133. It’s 10-2 Saturday June 23rd. We have lots of plants that look good, are up and blooming.

We will also need a few people to help at the sale, to run the cash registers, etc. Let Kandy or Pam know if you can help. We won’t need as many as we needed for the April sale, because we don’t have to move the plants to CUH, and arrange them and move them back to Kandy’s when the sale is done. We will sell them from their nursery beds at Kandy’s back yard.

The updated list (3/25/12) can be downloaded from Google documents.

Work Party – Sunday May 27th

We had a huge crowd on Sunday, May 27th from 10am-4pm! We had a monumental weed-pulling/horsetail removal effort, AND spread another 20 yards of Enviromix.  Our planting beds are prepped!  Just one or two more horsetail pulling sessions and I think we’ve got it licked!  Thank you to everyone who came!
