Well the big Heronswood open – its first major open since its purchase by the Port Gamble/Skallam tribe last year – is tomorrow! Yikes – how did that happen? It really sneaked up on us. While everyone has been promoting it in a big way, we have been slack in this department, because, oh, I don’t know, it just seems we have a million other things going on at once like usual.
In conjunction with the garden open, some of the Northwest’s best specialty nurseries will be present selling their coolest and most exciting plants in typical multi-nursery-sale fashion. As usual we are glad to accommodate special requests but you’ll have to get yours in by about 7:30 tomorrow morning!
There will also be the opportunity to hear Mr Hinkley talk about the past and future of Heronswood, and Kelly Dodson and Sue Milliken of Far Reaches will be giving a presentation as well.
After your Hersonwood visit, don’t forget to leave time to stop off at Dragonfly Farms Nursery where you can shop not only from their inventory of unusual stuff, but also from Phocas Farms who will be selling all kinds of exciting hardy succulents this weekend!
If that isn’t enough incentive to visit, this weekend is also Viking fest in Poulsbo. How much more excitement can you possibly ask for? But come to Heronswood first.
Looks like it’s going to be big, so hopefully we will see you there!
