Get ready for spring gardening!

Come out to this festive spring gardener gathering and find a huge selection of edible plant starts perfect for spring planting. It's on Saturday, March 14, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at the Pacific Market Center garage. Admission is FREE - come browse and get ideas for your spring garden!

Variety is the Spice of Life

Choose from a wide selection of organically, sustainably and locally grown veggies, herbs, edible flowers, fruit shrubs, fruit trees, seeds, supplies and knowledge galore --  perfect for planting in March. Seattle Tilth garden educators have carefully selected varieties that grow well in our maritime northwest climate. You will find:

  • Easy-to-grow plants for beginners such as lettuce, greens and peas

  • Favorites such as collards, kale, Swiss chard, rhubarb and strawberries.

  • Exotic, rare and heirloom plants that will excite more experienced gardeners including asparagus, horseradish, artichokes, onions, broccoli and blueberries.

  • Irresistible highlights for foodies include edible flowers, bulbing fennel, red scallions, Romanesco broccoli and dozens of culinary herbs.

  • Fruiting shrubs and fruit bearing trees will be available from Burnt Ridge Nursery.
