Heronswood Open and Sale this weekend!

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.

This event is getting a lot of press, including the following:
Seattle Times – Ciscoe Morris
Kitsap Sun

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!

    Most of the time I’m pretty darn happy to be in Portland, the plant scene here just seems better somehow (I say this as a former Washingtonian who loves her home state and the Puget Sound area in particular)…but this weekend I wish I were in Washington! We have things going on here too (like the Rare Plant Research Open House) so I won’t be bored but wish I could be there!!!

    Ah the Rare Plant Research open house, I hear that is a pretty spectacular event, but I have never been to one. You’re definitely right about the plant scene being better in the Portland area these days, but the newly local ownership and re-opening of Heronswood is a major step in the right direction in these parts.
