October 14th -Don’t Miss the 8th Annual HPSW Bulb and Plant Sale

Hardy Plant Society of Washington
8th Annual Fall Bulb and Plant Sale

Sunday Oct 14, 2018, 10 am – 2 pm

Center for Urban Horticulture
3501 NE 41st St. Seattle, WA 98105


Lots of varieties of fall planted, spring blooming bulbs at good prices: alliums, galanthus, crocus, narcissus, tulips, and smaller, more unusual bulbs like ixia, chionodoxa. Bulbs packaged in small amounts like 5-10 bulbs per bag,
so you can buy what you need.  There will also be plants for sale that look good in autumn.


Join us August 19th at Old Goat Farm in Graham for the HPSW annual summer picnic.
Tour the lovely gardens and nursery.  HPSWwill be providing food to be delivered. Free to members, $10 for guests.


Please  RSVP to Pamela to ensure the count for the caterers. Plan for a 11:30 arrival, with lunch at Noon.   Tour of garden after lunch.

Old Goat Farm has set aside this day for our event.  It is not limited to HPSW members but anybody who isn’t a member will have to pay $10, and register prior to the event.

We will encourage carpools because it’s so far away, an hour or so for most of us, more for people in places like Everett.

HPSW 2015 Annual Picnic

The annual HPSW picnic will be in Beda Herbison’s garden  on August 8, 2015  from  Noon to 3pm.  (Although we can stay later if we’re still talking!)

In the unlikely event that it rains we’ll be able to go inside, otherwise we’ll be in the shade of Beda’s large Cedar tree. 

The picnic is a potluck. HPSW will supply drinks and plates, cups etc. So all you need to bring is your potluck dish and a serving utensil. See you there!images-1
