She has grafted additional varieties to the espaliered trees, so she now has about twice that many varieties of pomme fruit wood. She also grows grapes, blueberries, persimmon, apricots, and plums.

HPSW: Summer plant sale Saturday July 8th 11am-3pm

HPSW will hold a summer sale  at Kandy Kroll’s house at 14555 Stone Ave N, Shoreline, WA 98133

Lots of perennials at good prices.

Stone Ave is one block east of Highway 99 (Aurora). Take the 145th exit from I-5 and  head west towards Aurora Avenue. Turn right at Stone Ave N, and go down the hill. Kandy’s  house is at the bottom of the hill. 

You will be able to wander around the pots we have and choose the plants you want. You bring them down to the cashier station and we will price the pots there. Our prices are extremely reasonable.   

Questions? email Pam at pamelaperrott@comcast.net

Please park on Kandy’s side of the road (west side) either outside Kandy’s yard or to the north. Don’t park on the east side, to allow the mail deliverer to reach the mailboxes there. 

We will be able to accept cash, credit cards and checks at this sale. 

Stone Ave N is a dead end street, but if you want refreshments, there are several

choices on Aurora Avenue nearby, for example Kidd Valley is just south of 145th on Aurora, McDonald’s is north at about 150th; and there’s a good pizza place nearby. 

we hope to see you on July 8th

HPSW June 19th Meeting @ 7-9pm -Elaine Sherbrooke -“Identifying Insect Damage in the Garden”

Identifying Insect Damage in the Garden” —  Elaine Sherbrooke

So, what caused the damage on that lettuce leaf, on your prize lily or your would-be tasty asparagus? Learning to recognize insect feeding patterns is a key to garden pest management. And in the Northwest, we have quite a rogue’s gallery of garden pests, most of them non-native (illiegal immigrant insects, if you will). Elaine is well-qualified and experienced in helping gardeners solve their garden mysteries. The slide show will be supplemented by some hands-on examples. Don’t miss it!

Elaine Sherbrooke has been a Master Gardener since 1994, and a Master Gardener Diagnostician since 2000.  She is in charge of the Master Gardener diagnostic lab housed at the Center for Urban Horticulture on the UW campus, staffed with 18 Master Gardener volunteers with advanced training in plant pathology and diagnosis.
